Update on the Indonesia students in Israel

As we reported last 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.

In addition to studying Judaism, the two are 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.
