• Emily F.- Hillel Jerusalem, Summer 2017

    “My summer on Hillel Onward Israel Jerusalem was without a doubt one of the most incredible summers of my life….It was really amazing to have gone on a program that gives its participants the freedom to explore Israel as they wish. I interned at the Hebrew University Givat Ram in the Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior Department. While there, I got to work on a study involving different species’ of lizards, which was an extremely unique experience. Even today I am still in touch with the professor I worked under, as we are continuing our work together over email. Being able to live in my favorite city on Earth with incredible people that I will be friends with for the rest of my life is something truly phenomenal. Onward Israel Jerusalem intensified my passion for the land of Israel, gave me valuable research experience to take back to Cornell, and allowed me to personally connect with the land I consider to be my home. I will cherish Summer 2017 forever.”
