Israel Teaching Fellows May Update

<div class="masa-blog-title">Israel Teaching Fellows May Update</div>

By Eric Eingold, Ma'ase Olam North American Manager
 
Unsurprisingly, things have been busy for Ma’ase Olam’s Israel Teaching Fellows this spring.
 
After kicking off a three-week break coinciding with Passover that started with a tiyul, or tour, of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, our Fellows took the chance to get some travelling in.

Radical amazement on Pardes' end-of-year Shabbaton

This past Shabbat Pardes had a tiyul and Shabbaton to the Galil. Prior to the tiyul, while briefly skimming the itinerary, I imagined that this Shabbaton would be the same as every Shabbaton I have been on since middle school.

Sundays at daycare

By Tyler Fishbone, Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa
 
Every Sunday, as part of my volunteering with Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, I spend 3-5 hours at a daycare facility for migrant workers.
 
Tel Aviv plays host to a majority of the almost 300,000 migrant workers and refugees in Israel. These people have a tough time getting jobs because many of them do not have legal status.
