Hi, My name is Orel Moshe.

Initially, I thought that coming to an pre-IDF academy would be a waste of a year. I preferred to go straight into the army. I came for Shabbat, and was encouraged by the friendliness of the Rabbis. So, I thought I’d give it a try for a month. As the month went by, I had talks with the Rabbi’s, attended some classes, even played a few pick-up basketball games. I could see myself changing, starting to view life and act more maturely. I decided to start making some serious choices and decided to stay on.

Although I came from a religious home and went to a good religious high school, I feel I have grown more and deeply changed in these few months at the Bet El Prep Academy. Now I am attending classes on my own desire (hold on while I pinch myself, did I just use the word “desire” in connection with learning), I attend prayers, often one of the first ten there. I work out in the fitness gym, and have come to feel a connection to the land through the hikes and other activities here.

I am learning to take responsibility for myself at the Academy. At home as well, I am growing closer with my Mom. My

Dad and I have not spoken for a while, but now we are working on that. I think he is beginning to see what the Academy is doing for me and I for myself. My relationships with my siblings are getting better, and I hope to become a more positive influence on them.

If not for this place, many of us here would not achieve what we are capable of. Thank you a thousand times for donating to the Israel Cadet Trek and helping me to change my life!
