El Al has impacted my relationship with Judaism because it opened the door to new jewish relationships and communities that I did not have before
-Maayane Dadon, 12th grader
El Al gave me a place to express my Judaism in a loving and welcoming community where traditions are explored and appreciated, and I could not be more grateful for that.
Annabel Honigstein, 11th grader
For me, El Al helps me connect with my Judaism by surrounding me with other Jewish teens and helping create an uplifting community!
Alma Samet, 11th grader
El Al has made me realize that Judaism can be so much more than just going to synagogue. In El Al, shabbat is always a blast. We do the prayers, and we add a little spin on it to make it funny and joyous. I love being in a tight circle with all of my friends because it makes me feel integrated into the Jewish community in my area. Overall, my relationship with Judaism has grown positively, and I am so grateful!
Michaela Rubinsky, 9th grader
El Al connects me to judaism because I get to light havdallah candles every week and sing blessings. I keep in touch with my faith every week in a really fun way because I get to do that with all of my friends. Its also great to have a community of Jews around you every week when there might not necessarily be a lot of Jews at school to relate to.
