“I’m from Jersey,” says Ben, “Samantha’s from Virginia, and we met in central Israel.” Both Ben Winik and Samantha Sisisky arrived in Israel in the fall of 2012 to begin ten-month Jewish service learning programs.



Ben had considered teaching English in France. Instead he opted for a teaching fellowship program with the Masa Israel Journey, [Masa Israel Teaching Fellows] and came to Rishon to work as a teacher’s aide in underserved and overcrowded classrooms. “It was an opportunity to teach and learn,” says Ben, “to give and get.”


Samantha came to Israel for another Masa Israel experience – the Yahel Social Change Progam, based in the town of Gedera. She worked in an Ethiopian-Israeli organization in grassroots social change, including teaching and tutoring in English.
