Reflection


The following short essays will enable the Nachshon Project to get insight into who you are and your plans for the future. 

Applicants must answer each question. Please limit each essay to 250 words or less. 



References

The Nachshon Project requires two references.


  1. A character reference. A character reference is from someone who can speak of you as a person and describe your character and values from a professional perspective. It would therefore be appropriate to ask for a reference from a professional, such as a rabbi or cantor, a Hillel director, or a mentor.
    Please do not submit a reference from a family member or friend.

  2. A recommendation from a Jewish professional, as detailed below.
           -   If you worked in a camp this past summer, you are required to submit a recommendation
               from your CAMP DIRECTOR.
           -   If you did not work in a camp this past summer, you are required to submit a
               recommendation from a PROFESSIONAL FOR WHOM YOU WORKED/VOLUNTEERED IN A
               JEWISH COMMUNAL ORGANIZATION.
Once you click "ok to contact" and save or submit this application, your references will automatically be emailed a link to the recommendation form. It is always a good idea to speak with the person whom you are asking for a recommendation prior to filling in his/her information. You should inform the references about the Nachshon Project, your own goals for the future, and anything else that might be pertinent to their writing a references on your behalf.
