“The trip to Israel was the most amazing thing I have ever done. It has changed my life in so many ways – my connection to Israel, my friends, my thoughts on life …”
“At the beginning, I didn’t expect much from the Programme but as soon as we all got together at the airport I already felt a sense of family. During the 24 hour trip to Israel we all bonded very quickly and became a strong group. As the days in Israel progressed we all gained friendships that were so strong that we just always enjoyed each other’s company. Israel was an experience like no other I’ve had or probably will have. I feel so privileged that I could be a part of such a wonderful experience”
“Before going on BJE EMET Israel Programme I never really thought much about Israel but being there made me fall in love with the people, the religion, the culture and just everything! I will always remember that fact that I had my adult Bat mitzvah on the Programme and now it has changed my views on Judaism. I feel so muchmore connected. I will always cherish the amazing friendships I formed and always remember the amazing places we visited”

“EMET israel has changed the way I feel about being Jewish. I used to hear about Israel and not feel much, but now that I have actually been there, it has made me feel much more connected to Israel and the Jewish people. Being part of the BJE EMET Israel Programme meant that I became a proper member of the Jewish Community in Sydney as well as internationally. It also gave me a chance to make more Jewish friends”
