Mikaela Gerwin ‘19, New York, NY

I am so grateful to the CJL for everything I have seen, touched and tasted through its incredible travel experiences. Rather than telling me, the CJL has always shown me.

I have driven around the Green Line hearing from experts on the Israeli- Palestinian  conflict.. I went to the Museum of Polish Jewry for hands-on learning, rather than just sitting in a lecture. I danced at the JCC of Mumbai, engaging myself with Indian Jews I never could have imagined meeting without the connections of the CJL.

At  the CJL, I have eaten countless chocolate chip cookies and hunks of challah throughout hours and hours of Friday night dinner. I have lingered on those nights and sung and chatted and basked in community time. Thank you to the CJL for providing me with this space.

You can help ensure that current and future Jewish students at Princeton have the same memorable experiences.
