JFGO Masa initiative keeps young Jews connected to Israel

Outubro 10, 2011

Each year, thousands of Jewish young adults take advantage of the Birthright Israel program, which provides free educational trips to Israel for first-time visitors between the ages of 18-26. But the journey does not have to end there.
Thanks to the Jerusalem-based Masa initiative, which is supported by the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando, young adults can continue to connect with Israel after they graduate from college. Masa, which means “journey” in Hebrew, provides more than 160 programs designed to help young Jews build a life-long relationship with Israel and a firm commitment to Jewish life.

A graduate of Lake Brantley High School and the University of Florida, Guadagna was looking for a way to gain some additional work experience after receiving a degree in industrial engineering. She had done the Birthright program at age 19.
 
Through Masa, she found out about its Career Israel program.
