“What a great way to spend my last “free” summer before graduating college! My volunteer experience was awesome. I got to practice my Hebrew and was allowed to do everything the staff did, so I really made a difference. Being on Amirim has shown me what I am capable of —I can work with severely disabled people; I can climb mountains; I can make new friends; I can explore a new country- it was incredible!” — Avigayil, Pittsburgh, PA
“My summer on Amirim was an incredible, life-changing experience. The program was exactly what I was looking for, and it really let me experience living in Israel. I made some great friends – Israeli, American and Canadian – and saw so much of the country! Taglit-Birthright Israel was a great introduction to Israel, but Amirim really let me explore. I just can’t say enough good things about the program!”– Ilana, Ottawa, Canada
“My experience on Amirim is one I will never forget. The program opened my eyes to a whole new part of Israel that I never knew about. My volunteer work teaching English actually made me want to explore teaching as a career. I am so grateful for the program and for all of my new friends.”– Nikki, Baltimore, MD
“You will love it! Ever since I did Taglit-Birthright, I have dreamt of going back to Israel. Amirim was a great way to give back, enrich my Jewish culture, and make new connections”– Andrew, Montclair, NJ
