Indonesia students in Israel

We are excited to collaborate once again with Rabbi Eliyahu Birnbaum and Tzivia Kusminsky of the Nidchei Yisrael program at Ohr Torah Stone to bring students from a Kulanu partner community to study in Israel.

Earlier this month, two community members from Indonesia arrived in Israel for intensive Jewish study. Voldano Izac Verlos Hokoyoku is studying at the Nidchei Yisrael program at Ohr Torah Stone, while Herlina Anace Yawang is learning at Midreshet B’erot Bat Ayin, a women’s Orthodox seminary located south of Jerusalem.

The two are studying Judaism and connecting to Israel through weekly trips to allow them to experience the country. They also have weekly lessons about how to teach the community when they return.

Thanks to support from our donors, Kulanu contributed one airfare to help make this possible. Thanks to Ohr Torah Stone and their donors, who paid all other expenses for this intensive study program.
