What did you like best about being an ACHARAI Fellow?
The comradery - the Jewish community is much more integrated now then it was 10 years ago when I went through the ACHARAI Fellows Program. Diversity was a real issue and ACHARAI neutralized it. It showed that we are all part of one big family, the Jewish people.

What is the most valuable skill you took away from the ACHARAI Fellows Program?
out there and I found myself saying, “wow that’s a really good idea, I would never have thought of that myself!” I also learnt not to be afraid of change, change is good!
