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

Isabel Glass, February 2014

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.

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

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.
