“I am thrilled to be a Masa campus representative because I feel incredibly privileged to have had the Masa Israel experience I did. It is my duty to pay it forward and help my peers to do the same!” – Sophia Wilkof, Masa Israel Journey campus representative, UCLA
In partnership with Masa Israel Journey, Hillel connects Jewish students to more than 200 opportunities for an immersive and life-changing 5-12 months in Israel.
Hillel works closely with Masa Israel through the Masa Israel Internship on campus. Trained in Hillel’s peer-to-peer relationship methodology and supervised by Hillel staff, Masa Israel interns build relationships with their fellow students and help them find the experience that is right for that individual. The interns also play a vital role in working with students who’ve participated in Taglit-Birthright Israel trips, by helping them reflect on their time in Israel.
In 2012-2013, 32 Masa Israel interns on 16 campuses in the U.S. and Canada will help over 300 of their peers connect to the ideal long term Israel program for them.
