'Focus on Keeping the Committed Committed'

“As a student on campus I wasn’t necessarily getting the breadth of conversation I wanted when I was on campus.”

Rachel Greenspan, a participant in the Israel Government Fellows, a ten month MASA program that offers young leaders the opportunity to work in and learn about the Israeli political environment, spoke to Arutz Sheva on occasion of participating in the 2013 Presidential Conference in Jerusalem.

Greenspan participated in the panel of the Conference titled: “The Campus as a Crossroads in the Life of a Young Jew.”

Coming on the program “opened my eyes to a lot of the realities on the ground in Israel,” she told Arutz Sheva.

“As a student on campus I was not necessarily aware of all that and wasn’t necessarily getting the breadth of conversation I wanted when I was on campus.”

She said that while she was already committed to Judaism and Israel, she wanted a program that was more “nuanced” and “in-depth” than the scope of activities offered on American campuses.
