Gili Z. – Boston Haifa, Summer 2018
“I interned at the Neve Yosef Community Center. My official job was to help organize the community center’s annual Theatre Festival which takes place during Sukkot. However, I was very involved in all departments of the community center. I completely fell in love with my job, everyone at the community center, and the environment I spent five days a week working in.
At first, I was nervous to immerse myself in a work environment that I had no experience in, however, after these two months, I am so glad that I did. Although I have experience and knowledge of Israeli culture, I had never worked in Israel before. I can now say that this was one of the best and most fulfilling experiences of my life. I got to experience the life my parents once lived when they were my age and it changed my entire perspective of and connection to Israel. I have made many connections and friendships at my internship and I can genuinely say that I will miss this community center and Haifa very much.”
