Collective construction is one of the founding bases of Jewish identity and I believe that we have a responsibility to follow that mandate. We are better together, we are better with each other.

“The most important thing in life is to cheer up. The most complicated thing in life is to be afraid. The smartest thing in the world is to try to be a moral person.” – Shimon Peres
To me, community is the legacy, the school, and transmission. It’s traditions, family and friends, and the place in the world in which history has situated us. It involves resisting the events of the Shoah and the responsibility that no Jew will go through something like it again. It is the frame of my identity and inspires me to take care, reproduce, and convey it to future generations.

Ilan Buzny – Argentina

Ilan Buzny – 2023 NG Fellow

The pride of belonging and activating in just causes. I don’t think that as young people we are only the future, we are also part of the present and we have to activate to start getting involved and to be able to create the community we want.

What prompts me to work in the community is, on one hand, my family’s example and education and on the other, a deep sense of Jewish-Zionist identity.

Geraldine Hochman – 2023 NG Fellow

What motivates me the most is thinking about continuity, and the fruits of a job. In knowing that there is a future led by one or several groups of people who have a common goal and who work for the well-being of something that exceeds one as a person.

What motivates me to activate in my community is the understanding that, precisely, a community is built from its members. Understanding that, the possibility of participating in community development and in its relationship with the general society, I consider it an honor that is rarely given to a person.
