Colleagues speak out


"Without the Jewish Center, it is doubtful that I would have returned to Israel. Before, I was not at all as connected to tradition as I am today."

Dr. Arkadiy Bangiev

Medical School graduate 2014

"As for me, The Jewish Center was a place to study, to have enrichment in Judaism and our tradition as a Jewish nation".

Dr. Revital Nassimov

Medical School graduate 2016

"I was surprised to see how I returned to Israel after six years - much more connected to Jewish tradition than I had been when I left Israel."

Dr. Phillip Perlov

Medical School graduate 2014

"This is a warm Israeli-Jewish corner, with a sense of community. When we sat at the end of the third Shabbat meal, our hearts opened."
