MEET THE ISRAEL INTERNS
MEET SARENE
Sarene Shaked

Hometown
Manhattan

Psychology Major
Class of 2018

Best Birthright Memory
"We had a really exhausting day hiking and had finally arrived at the kibbutz where we were sleeping. The air was very fresh and there was a beautiful view, so everyone decided to bring their dinner outside. We had been together for only a week, but it felt like we'd known each other for years. I remember as we sat out the grass, watched the amazing sunset, and laughed with one another, taking a step back to appreciate the wonderful atmosphere and all the new friends I had made."

MEET ARIANNE

AEM Major

MEET BRIANNA

"Arriving in Jerusalem for the first time...We stopped at an overlook with a few other Birthright groups and danced together to live traditional music while watching a beautiful sunset."

MEET RYAN
Ryan Norton

Hometown
Trumbull, CT

Government Major
Class of 2017

Best Birthright Memory
"I remember being in Jerusalem at the Western Wall. It is custom, as a sign of respect, to face the wall and walk backward a few steps before turning around to exit the plaza. While I was walking backwards, I bumped into an old friend of mine! I hadn't seen him in years, and the crazy thing was that neither of us were supposed to be there! My group was in Jerusalem a day behind schedule and his army unit was supposed to be in Beersheba, a city hours away. My friend was unfazed by the unbelievable odds that we would bump into each other. He told me it happens to him all the time in Israel. This country brings people together in the most unlikely of ways."
