“Shlichut definitely gave me a push in my career”
" I grew up in Russia, and came to Israel when I was 16 on The Jewish Agency's Na'ale program.
In 2004, I became one of the first Jewish Agency Israel Fellows to Hillel. On campus, I quickly discovered that when students heard "Israel," they thought only of the conflict.
I saw it as my mission to educate Jews and non-Jews alike. I went as an Israeli, explaining Israeli culture, food, lifestyles, and most importantly political and foreign policies.
I went to help students at Brooklyn College understand the real Israel."
