We’ll also ask for references and letters of recommendation -- but don’t worry, you’ll get all the information you need for that piece when you apply.

  • “The Nachshon Project provided me with the opportunity to take a step back and clarify what is important to me and to think about where my life is headed. It also enabled me to consider how I can improve my connections with other people and how I can better present ideas to different audiences in a way that they will find meaningful”. 

    Eliana Kahan, Barnard College, Camp Stone

  • “The Nachshon Project gave me the opportunity to engage with peers from completely different backgrounds, which really gave me the chance to learn new ideas and to better understand how different summer camps and different movements within the Jewish world define Jewish practice. And while I learned a lot from hearing about these different experiences, I also understood how much we all have in common and how we share so many of the same values”.

    Joey Barr, Brandeis University, URJ OSRUI

  • “The Nachshon Project really helps you figure out where you see yourself Jewishly and professionally. Before coming on The Nachshon Project, I had a lot of questions about what role I wanted Judaism to play in my life, and the program provided the perfect opportunity to explore those questions. It was really a once-in-a-lifetime experience”.

    Anina Dassa, University of Michigan, Camp Ramah in California
