    Jess N. – Boston Jerusalem – Summer 2023

    “My time at my archaeological internship was invaluable to my experience learning about Israeli society. Working in the digs, I got to meet the archaeologists, construction workers, and logistics coordinators, who all had different roles and histories. When walking to work each day, I walked through the Kotel plaza, which allowed me to see the diversity of the Jewish community who visit. I also witnessed tour groups from around the world learning about our culture, which made me indescribably happy. I also saw the results of our excavations in the ‘Roman glass’ jewelry sold in the shuks and in the Israel Museum.”
