Meet our Founders:
Bracha and Peninah Both grew up in Jewish day schools in America, came to Israel for a gap year and decided to stay in Israel. They each did a year in Sherut Leumi, followed by attending University and graduating. Both Bracha and Peninah are happily married living in Israel today. While they each found their paths challenging, it was also extremely rewarding. They decided to take on the mission to help others in their shoes by creating a community and making resources more accessible to those looking to stay "here next year".
Bracha and Peninah founded Here Next Year in 2014, and made it the successful organization that it is today.
