Academy Testimonials

The volunteering weeks, for me, where extremely meaningful as it felt good to know that we could give back to the Israeli society.

"AUJS academy was an incredible six-week tour around Israel, which allowed me to truly engage with my Jewish identity as well as to be immersed in the rich culture and history of the Israeli nation." - Tessa, Sydney 2016/17

"It was a fantastic trip that I won't ever forget due to the memorable experiences and lifelong friendships formed." - Ashley, Sydney 2016/17

"A lot of the reason my experience was so amazing comes from the group being such an amazing group of people." – Abbey, Perth 2017/18

"This trip genuinely changed my life. Not only did I meet some incredible people who will stay in my life forever, but I learnt so much about Jewish history and my identity as a Jewish person that has substantially impacted my views on Israel and how I will consider it in the future. I cannot thank the organisations involved enough for such a phenomenal experience." – Lily, Sydney 2017/18
