What Our Alumni Are Saying

“Nativ has impacted my life in so many ways. It enriched my already existing active Jewish practice with memories to relate them to. It gave me an opportunity to live in a different country and learn new customs and culture. Most importantly, it made my love of Israel even stronger.”
