"I had the most amazing time this past year in the Arevim Masa Year of Service. I loved the independence, being able to live on my own and have my own job. The program had a good balance of letting us be independent while also having some prepared programming for us. "

"After the high holidays, Adam worked at the Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv as a nurse’s aide for several months, and then as a teacher’s assistant at King Solomon school in Herzliya. He received his Covid vaccines in December and January – long before we were vaccinated in Canada – and was able to join a gym and go to restaurants and clubs. The group went on trips up north and in the desert and had wonderful experiences."

"The program also took us to the many landmarks and historical sites in Israel, such as Jerusalem’s Western Wall, which was a powerful sight to see, having never seen it before. I saw so many mesmerizing sites and learned so much about the country from these trips. In conclusion, doing this gap year program was the best decision I ever made. I created bonds to last a lifetime and made memories that I will recall for years to come. So if you are a future possible Masa participant reading this and deciding how you would like to spend your year, let me strongly recommend this life-changing program.
