You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

July 15, 2015

For the first time ever, Masa Israel Journey and its alumni communities across North America have coordinated efforts to hold a series of Shalom U’Lehitraot (Hello and Goodbye) Parties across the country this summer. Each community has taken it upon itself to bring together alumni, recent returnees and future Masa Israel Journey participants. 

As recent returnees say hello, they can expect a warm welcome into a local network of Jewish young adults, united by their shared Masa Israel experiences. Alumni will be happy to share their advice for successful transition back into life stateside. Additionally, Masa Israel’s alumni communities help connect alumni to local and national opportunities to strengthen their connections to Israel and to deepen their involvement in Jewish life.

While future participants say goodbye before heading to Israel, they will have the opportunity to answer all of their last minute questions and get the local scoop from Masa Israel alumni who lived it like a local before them.

Meanwhile, veteran Masa Israel alumni will reunite to catch up, reminisce about Israel and find out about the exciting local and national opportunities that the Masa Israel alumni community has in store for the coming year.
