Working with Holocaust Survivors: Amcha is the Israeli organization for psychological and social support for Holocaust survivors and their families. The aim of the internship is to provide survivors with companionship. The student will be matched up with a survivor and meet with him/her once a week on a regular basis, for an hour. This is a very meaningful experience for the survivors and their families as well as for the student. Wonderful friendships have come out of this internship. The internship requires active participation in a preparation seminar which will take place in November as well as monthly group meetings for guidance by the professional team of Amcha.
