Sheina, Shnat 2015

"Hineni Shnat was one of the most incredible experiences of my life to date. It was a truly meaningful journey that allowed me to become more engaged with my Judaism, and form a deeper connection to Israel. Being so immersed in Israeli society for 10 months was a special, eye opening experience, which also helped me form my own unique connection to Israel. We saw what it meant to live in Israel and do our part for society. I had the opportunity of seeing Israel through the lens of a First Aid responder for MDA. I wouldn’t have been able to get that anywhere else."

Guy, Shnat 2014

"Every day brought a new experience and that has lead me to become the person that I am today. Hineni has always meant a lot to me, and having that as the root of my year helped set me up for my future. The independence I gained was immense and the friendships I formed, even more significant. 

This program directs you towards a path to becoming a better person, and offers you the skills to allow the same for others. I was once told a saying that “as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”. The Hineni Shnat program has allowed my light to shine."
