    "Knowing a range of languages is extremely important for many however my studies of Hebrew are more complex. I perceive Hebrew as a key component of my Jewish identity and therefore of who I am. With this award I hope to continue my studies of Hebrew as well continue discovering my Jewish identity. This award will allow me to travel to Israel where I will be able to continue developing my Hebrew skills both formally and informally."
    - Anne Axel
