AMHSI completely changed my life. It was my first real experience with Israel and Judaism. It really resonated with me and made me proud to be Jewish and of where I come from.

Why hesitate? Where else would you be able to do such a program? This is a life-changing experience that you can’t do anywhere else on Earth.

Asher Zlotnik, Spring 2007

My journey at AMHSI has been an experience that I will never forget. I have made new friends, seen new places and learned new things that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Because of AMHSI, I am forever changed as a friend, a student, a world citizen, and a Jew.
