Humans of Perlman is a blog featuring portraits and interviews of ILTC 2016 participants collected at B'nai B'rith Perlman Camp. Interviews completed by Ilana Hamer and Samantha Zuckerberg.
Meredith Galanti: Beyond the expected leadership opportunities and lessons that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise, as well as the incredible friends I’ve met along the way, I think that one of the biggest things BBYO has given me is a sort of preparedness for college and beyond. Socially, academically, and extracurricularly, I feel like my goals and standards for myself are a lot higher and I know how I want to go about achieving them.
Matt Rabinowitz: I love Shabbat elective afternoons. I got the opportunity to sit and get bonding time with a lot of the teens that I don’t talk to as much during the week, and make connections that last a lifetime.
Aaron Abeid: [Describe ILTC in 10 Words]
One of the most amazing experiences of my lifetime.
Ariella Garber and Rebecca Michel: We both got to the airport really early so I just sat down in a group of people and she was next to me and we started talking and then we sat together on the bus on the way here and we’ve been friends ever since.
Matt Jankowitz: A big lesson I learned here at ILTC here is the importance of going out of your comfort zone. Coming into the program, I was really reserved and was nervous to branch out to new people, but after participating more and getting more involved, I think I’ve been really able to grow as a leader and a person. This is a mindset that I want to take back home and bring it to my region.
