The Sabra Institute fellowship was very engaging. Our instructors Irv and Alisa backed by the behind the scenes support of David and Jojo provided us with a fascinating curriculum that examined significant parts of Israel's history that often get overlooked by teachers in yeshivah. On top of that, we participated in hands-on exercises that cultivated skills necessary to debate and be effective advocates for Israel. I really learned a lot from my fellow Sabra seniors, since we sometimes had to critique each others performance in speech and presentation. In the end, I walked away from the Sabra program with more knowledge, debate techniques, and friendships.
