AACI Student Connect
This program pairs up Jewish students from Israel and around the world for one-on-one conversations via Zoom & WhatsApp; you’ll get dialogue prompts and
explore identity, Jewishness, and the challenging topics of antisemitism and the misrepresentations of Israel.
- “It was good hearing others’ opinions about being Jewish and Israel and making a good friend. I feel optimistic about the Jewish nation in the future- although it’s hard, we are a strong nation”.
- “Something that surprised me is how well I would get along with my partner and how connected I would feel to her merely because we are both Jewish”.
