4,000 Jews gather to celebrate Masa opening

An electric atmosphere filled Jerusalem’s Pais Arena Monday night, as some 4,000 participants from Masa programs across Israel celebrated the launching of the organization’s new year of activities at the annual MyMasa Event, which included an address by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a performance by Ivri Lider.

The prime minster commented that, “You know that you’re here because something very special is happening here, because you are the Jewish leaders of tomorrow, and we appreciate the fact that you are giving yourself a wonderful opportunity not just to help, but to learn.”

Since 2004, more than 100,000 people from all over the world have taken part in Masa programs, ranging from volunteering to studying and interning at companies and institutions throughout Israel.
