“When Jessica first entered WOFI she knew very little about Israel.  It was a distant place with little connection to her life.  Jessica is now a passionate Israel advocate.  She keeps abreast of events in the news and is continually advocating for Israel on the internet, editorials and among her peers.  WOFI has had a huge impact in my daughter’s life.  The program helped transform a shy, quiet girl into a bold, informed, articulate, and passionate advocate.”
– Betsy S., mother of Jessica, Yale ‘15
