Israel by Choice is remarkable in the opportunities it affords you. The opportunity to have a shared experience with a plethora of different personalities, a diaspora of beliefs; a collection of like-minded people no better suited to make the IBC experience the best choice Iv come to make. Beyond expanding your social horizons (which in itself is a wonderful thing); IBC equips you with incredibly formative and developmental experiences that contrast between impassioned volunteering, and developing connections with Judaism – while considering anything in-between. And ultimately that’s what makes Israel by Choice inimitable; the ability to have such a large degree of choice in ensuring a lucrative and rewarding gap-year experience. I extend my deepest recommendation to anyone who is interested in gaining new insights, having new experiences and forming irreplaceable friendships.
