    “At first the thought of living halfway around the world terrified me, but the opportunity to write for The Jerusalem Post, an internationally read newspaper, was one I could not pass up… I can confidently now say my summer with Onward Israel will increase my knowledge of Israel and the nature of international media.” - Hannah, Hillel Onward Israel Participant 2015
