From Cleveland To Israel: Worlds Apart, but Still So Close
“There’s a really strong sense of community in Cleveland,
and that same feeling of closeness is here in Israel as well.”
-Daniella Israelstam, current Year Course participant
Cleveland and Israel may seem like they are worlds away from each other but
for Itamar Nurko, Talia Fleshler, Eitan Meskin, and Daniella Israelstam, they
are closer than ever. These four Clevelanders are in Israel, spending a gap
year between high school and college on Young Judaea Year Course. Although
Cleveland and Israel are separated by thousands of miles, they have been able
to find a community as a home away from home in Israel. They spent the fall
semester studying Hebrew, Zionism, and Religion in Jerusalem, and for the
spring semester they are living and volunteering in Bat Yam, an underprivileged
city just south of Tel Aviv. They are spread out at different locations
throughout the area, with Eitan at a soup kitchen, Talia at an elementary
school, Itamar at a school on the sea, and Daniella at Save a Child’s Heart.
Although they have only been in Bat Yam for a month and a
half, they have been able to integrate into Bat Yam’s culture and community. Talia
feels that, “it’s important that we are here because we’ve learned the
socioeconomic status and demographic of the community. When you are here you
feel the type of environment- it’s the “real” Israel- it feels more authentic.”
Eitan adds that, because Bat Yam is a smaller city he feels that he is, “making
an impact on the community”. The soup kitchen where he volunteers distributes over
700 sandwiches every day to children who cannot afford to bring lunch to school,
and working in that kind of environment has been very rewarding for Eitan.
Daniella is determined to “leave Bat Yam better than we found it”.
Apart from the volunteering and classroom education that
these four have experienced, they all feel that they have matured and become
more independent throughout their time on Year Course. For the first time, they
have had to learn how to cook, buy groceries, budget their money, go to the
doctor, and take public transportation as their main method of traveling. In
short, according to Talia, they are learning how to “do things that our parents
did for us”.
In fact, some of the most amazing experiences that they have
had in Israel have been outside of Year Course. A few weeks ago, Eitan and
Itamar went rappelling in a salt cave near the Dead Sea!
What kind of adventure will you have next year?
