In the five-week JOLT experience, you will learn about the rich Jewish past in Poland, work in a camp in Austria for unaffiliated Jewish children and focus on what it means to be a Jewish leader in Israel.

Most importantly, I realize how much power an individual holds, and how much impact one can do with the right intentions. As my TJJ director Josh Broide once said; to truly be successful you have to ‘inspire yourself to […]
