Rather than being surrounded by Americans whose experiences are identical to mine, I chose the more stimulating and challenging experience of living and learning with sabras (native-born Israelis), Ethiopians, Russians and North Africans.
 
Rather than confining my use of Hebrew to the classroom, I engaged myself by conversing with my Israeli roommates and friends in their language. This is what Ben-Gurion University's Overseas Program is all about.
