    TESTIMONIALS:
    “The things I have learned this summer in my internship have forever changed me and have helped me grow into a better educator. Every time I go home to Israel I can't help feeling like I belong and like I am doing something to better myself in a variety of ways.”
    - Heather Goodman '16
    “Baltimore Onward Israel provided me with an opportunity unlike any other. I was given the opportunity to immerse myself in Tel Aviv culture and lifestyle, whether it be through work, food or daily activities. I was provided with the chance to go to other places in Israel and gain a greater understanding and perspective of what makes Israel holy and what makes it so special. My experience with Onward Israel has been simply unforgettable.”
    - Sara Malinow '16
    “I have had the pleasure of shadowing an Occupational Therapist and working hands on with kids. It has been a life changing experience and I have probably learned more from them than they have from me. It has been a summer that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”
    - Aaron Wan '16
