What I'm Doing Here: Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa

<div class="masa-blog-title">What I'm Doing Here: Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa</div>

 
I came here with Taglit-Birthright, which is a free 10-day program for Jewish youth to come to Israel and tour around the country.
 
I've now been living in Tel Aviv for 6 months, doing a program call Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, which means "repair the world" in Hebrew.

Changing Lives: Teacher Changes Lives—Her Students' and Her Own—in Israel

<div class="masa-blog-title">Changing Lives: Teacher Changes Lives—Her Students' and Her Own—in Israel</div>

 
By Danielle Longo, participant in Masa Israel's Israel Teaching Fellows
 
Growing up as a Conservative Jew in Bloomfield Hills, I knew the basics of the religion and of Israel. I went to Hillel Day School in Farmington Hills. I celebrated holidays, went to shul and believed in God. That is, until I was 17 and my dad passed away.
