After her Birthright trip to Israel
during college, Short Hills, NJ-native Lindsey Rothschild knew she had to return. “I know it’s cliché, but I just really fell in love with it,” she says. “While at the Kotel, I ran into a recent Northwestern alum who was on a Masa Israel Journey program and I thought to myself, this has to be me next year.”
With the encouragement of the Hillel
Israel Engagement professional at Northwestern, Lindsey enrolled in OTZMA
, a ten-month service-oriented program. “When I bumped into another Northwestern student at the Kotel during my first Shabbat on OTZMA, I was really happy to have come full circle,” she says.
