Josh R. – Columbus, Summer 2019
My Onward Israel experience surpassed all my expectations. I made lifelong friends while gaining valuable work experience in an incredible city. Tel Aviv felt like home for me and strengthened my connection to Judaism. I feel inspired to get more involved on campus with both Israeli and Jewish clubs and organizations. Life in Tel Aviv taught me to see the world through a new lens. I hope I can bring back what I learned to Columbus and Ohio State. Whether it was spending late nights hanging with friends at the malabia, or feeling accomplished after completing projects at work, this summer will stick with me forever.
