What people are saying about OLAM

“This opportunity would not have been an option without OLAM. NALA’s network increased drastically from the visit, and it completely changed the way I think about engaging with the Jewish community in North America. The encounters really helped ‘fill my battery’ after an intense period that left me somewhat drained.”

Jacob Sztokman, Founding Director, Gabriel Project Mumbai

OLAM has been a gamechanger for CADENA because of the interaction with other orgs, the other cooperation, we are now working with NATAN, in Colombia and Guatemala, and if OLAM wasn’t there, this networking wouldn’t be possible.

Annie Vainrub, CADENA

OLAM has really proved its worth, when it comes to connecting the Jewish organizations involved in international development and humanitarian aid. These connections have led to meaningful collaborations in the field that have truly impacted local communities across the globe.

Ruth Messinger, Social Justice Consultant

OLAM makes the world a little smaller, helps me connect the physical and spiritual dots, and gives me inspiration to do things that are usually just too hard for me to confront some days. Thank you OLAM for having our back and lifting our spirits.

Yosef Abramowitz, Energiya Global

Hartman's partnership with OLAM has yielded new insights about the intersection of power, sovereignty, and global responsibility in Jewish life today. We're excited to continue working with OLAM to bring these ideas to wider audiences.

Dr. Elana Stein Hain, Shalom Hartman Institute

We are proud of the longstanding and treasured partnership the Office of the Chief Rabbi has forged with OLAM, dedicated to inspiring young Jewish adults across Britain to work toward our shared commitment to global Jewish responsibility, and to contributing to a more compassionate world, based on Jewish values.

Dan Bacall, Office of the Chief Rabbi

OLAM's educators are masterful at using Jewish texts to probe modern questions. The sessions they delivered challenged my perspective and gave me new insight into my commitment to care for the world's most vulnerable citizens.

Cindy Greenberg, Repair the World

Being an OLAM member has done wonders for my professional network. As an independent consultant, I've had several direct professional opportunities arise as a result of events facilitated by OLAM. All of this in addition to the wonderful learning and social interactions that come along with it. One of the most professionally rewarding networks I belong to!

Andrew Carmona, OLAM Individual Member

OLAM plays a key role as a connector, which has been invaluable to HIAS as we explore partnerships with other international Jewish humanitarian agencies across all the countries in which we work.

Merrill Zack, HIAS

I am so appreciative of the access to resources that individual OLAM membership gives me. Being part of the OLAM network enriches my professional and personal life.

Julie Richards, OLAM Individual Member

OLAM's support has allowed us to learn, connect, meet new stakeholders, raise awareness of our cause, and expand our reach. We are proud to be part of this network of exceptional individuals.
