Our Interns

My name is Leigh Libling and Magshimey Herut helped me make my first summer as a college student a very meaningful and eventful one. I interned for a Middle East Studies Professor in IDC Herzliya where I helped him write a chapter in his upcoming textbook. Working as a research assistant helped me sharpen my writing abilities and learn many interesting facts about the subject matter. I was also in charge of different tasks such as translation and further research work for the professor’s other endeavors. Not only did I spend my summer in Israel but I was able to work as an intern in a field that best suited my interests

  • Trying to find an internship on my own was proving near impossible. I looked into programs online, but they all seemed so generic, not to mention the expensive enrollment fees. From the first phone call, I could tell that Magshimey Herut was different. What set them apart was the personal service I received. Through the entire internship process I felt supported. I knew that I had a place I could turn to for help with any issue, not only problems related to my internship. For the actual internship, I told MH about my interests and they found me multiple opportunities. I interviewed for one internship, but wasn’t happy with the work I was to be doing. I called MH and they told me it was no problem, and that they would be happy to find another internship better suited for me. Within a week I had an internship at an innovative consulting firm, specializing in sustainability and green technology. I thoroughly enjoyed my internship, and what’s more, it was in the exact field in which I was interested. Thank you MH!

  • I was put in contact with World Magshimey Herut by a referral from the Jewish Agency. I was most impressed with World Magshimey Herut’s genuine desire to help Olim find work in Israel. The team at World Magshimey Herut sent my resume out to law firms and I received more than I expected – I was accepted to work at a top 10 legal firm based in Ramat Gan. Not only that, but in my interview, the Partner told me that he took note of my resume especially because of the cover letter from World Magshimey Herut, which expressed their desire to help Olim. Finding work in Israel is a difficult and very important task for Olim, and I want to thank the team at World Magshimey Herut for all of their help!

    After arriving in Israel in June I was very lost and was unsure where I could start.  Since I did not make Aliyah and I am just here trying things out it there are only certain organizations that can help. First I went to one internship organization and before they would help me they needed me to pay the registration fee and they needed to look over my CV. They told me that I had to wait another 6 months. I asked them what I should do for six months in Israel while I waited for their program to begin. They didn’t have a response.  That is when I was given the information for World Magshimey Herut. I was contacted within 24 hours of sending an email. By the end of our first meeting I had an internship set up.   I really felt that they took the time to get a feel for exactly what I wanted. I have now started my internship and I am enjoying it tremendously. For WorldMH every person that walks through her office is worthwhile.Thank you so much Magshimey Herut and Karma.
