Memories for life!

Where do I start!?  The Ohrsom Tour was everything I dreamed of and more! It was more than just a tour, it was a journey. It was a personal, emotional, fun and beautifully  Jewish  journey. This was in fact my first time stepping foot onto the land of Israel. The journey I went on was one of immense spiritual growth and continuous reflection. The learning was inspiring, the sight seeing was eye opening and the experience was  indescribable – one  which I’ll will treasure for the rest of my life.  It must be said that without the Rabbonim, who took the lead, the Ohrsom Tour simply would not have been the same.  I would personally like to thank each of them for their seamless and professional leadership in conducting this well run tour.

The Israel trip exceeded all expectations! I can’t fault anything. It was an eye opener and a source of lots of bonding and friendship making with people from different cities, from all around the world. It appeals to any Jew out there, from all walks of life, which is amazing as it further unites us all.
My experiences from the yeshiva all the way to swimming in the Dead Sea were unbelievable. The memories I made will always be cherished and close to my heart.

I have been part of the Ohrsom Student family for 2 years. I say family because that’s what it is; whether it’s going on a tour and meeting my global family, visiting a sister Ohrsom Student branch or just learning together once a week, it means I get to meet up with Jews from all backgrounds and work towards a common goal. Ohrsom Student offered me my first opportunity to go to Israel and what an amazing and unforgettable experience it was. Touring Israel from north to south, stopping off in many beautiful and spiritual cities, accompanied by great activities, food and company all made it an inspiring and incredible first time experience. The orgnisation and tours have a great balance of spirituality and fun with a staff that works in unison towards this objective, which is what I believe its success is attributable to. Whether you’re in it for the tours or the learning (hopefully both), you’re going to be part of an organisation that is successfully engaging the Jewish youth. What are you waiting for? Join this Ohrsom experience!
