YC Alumni Say:
" Individuals from 9 countries were brought together to illustrate precisely what Jewish unity is - I firmly believe that over the course, Marva ignited the spark of Jewish identity that for many has lain dormant in our hearts."- Michael Marciano, London, England
“ I could not be happier that I signed up for Olami and would strongly recommend it to others. It has truly enhanced my year, making me appreciate my time in Israel even more and teaching me an aspect of Jewish culture and history I never would have learned otherwise. ” - Gaby Grossman, Los Angeles , CA , Boston University
