      Onward Israel: A Gateway to Jewish Friendships
         One of the Onward Israel program participants, Holly
      Shulman, a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin, shares
      her heartfelt experience. “I’m so happy I decided to do Onward
      through South Palm Beach! My family only moved to Delray
      Beach in September, so I was a bit hesitant to apply because I
      didn’t know anyone in the area. I am so thankful I did because
      I had the most amazing summer and met so many people in
      the Boca area, who I now can call friends and can’t wait to see
      when we are back-home!” Holly said.
         This Onward Israel journey was also a convergence of past
      connections and new experiences that wove together a tapestry
      of lasting Jewish friendships. Among them were four girls
      who had once shared the joys of sleepaway camp during their
      childhood, and found themselves embarking on the Onward
      adventure together. “Finding out 3 other girls from my camp
      were going to be on my Onward experience was a wonderful
      surprise!” said participant Ashley Zuckerman. “We were able to
      reconnect in Israel, form the best friendships, and now we have
      the most special Onward memories to look back on together!”
         Equally heartening were the reunions of South Palm Beach
      County high school friends, now scattered across colleges
      throughout the nation, who were brought back together through             South Palm Beach County Onward Israel 2023 Summer Cohort
