I wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to have a year to study in Israel. Without your support, I probably would never have gotten such an amazing opportunity. One of the main reasons that I want to have another year of Torah study is to continue building my textual skills. I know that I often love what Rashi has to say, but I want to be able to decipher his commentary on my own, which I am not able to do now. I also hope to gain knowledge in various areas of Halacha in order to continue living not only a Jewish life, but also a Halachic life. I believe that I can be most successful accomplishing these goals in Israel. Having never been to Israel, I have only heard how inspiring and uplifting an experience it is to be in the land. I hope to gain inspiration touring my homeland, seeing my history come alive. I am a person that is constantly being inspired not only by my learning, but my surroundings. Thank you so much for helping me on my journey for achieving my goals.
