Hey D’’ash! I’ve been meaning to write you an email wishing you a Shana Tova for quite a while, but it kept slipping my mind. Finally I remembered! Shana Tova! I hope you had a nice, relaxing chag, and a fantastic new year! I also wanted to thank you once again for giving me the incredible opportunity to intern with you. I learned so much. From working on a deadline, to turning an idea into a story and, of course, how to write more concisely. As school has begun and I’m back into “paper writing mode” I realize how much the tools I have learned at the Jpost have helped me. I am so grateful that I was lucky enough to have a truly amazing internship, and I have the whole team to thank for that.Hope all is wonderful with you!
All the best, Emily Young, New York
Hi Emily! We’re really happy to hear you got so much from the internship and that it’s helping with your studies. Opportunities like this can often help with your “formal” education and paper writing.We’re so glad you get to reap the benefits of spending a summer here in our office. Shana tova and we hope you’re doing well! Best, D’’ash team
A continued conversation between reader/writer and editor:
Hello D’’ash, Seeing my work in D”ash is probably one of my most amazing accomplishments! I have been showing it to all of my friends and family and they love it. It is so gratifying to be a part of an international publication. Thank you so much for making this happen. I may be getting a job drawing for the Israel Campus Beat which is an online news source for all things related to Israel going on on college campuses : http://israelcampusbeat.org/home.aspx
Also, I am being published in The College Zionist, which is a publication of The Zionist Organization of America. Lastly, this year I am an MZ Grinspoon Intern for the Israel on Campus Coalition: http://israelcc.org/ My goal is to change/influence the view of Israel on campus at Florida State University to help create a more positive outlook. I know that D”ash focuses on bridging those young people outside Israel with young people in Israel, and since this is a college student driven initiative, I was wondering if you could give me feedback. In addition if there is any way that D”ash could be of service I would be greatly appreciative.
By the way, the entire October issue was fantastic. I love how it focused on art. Hopefully I get the issue framed.
All the best,
Daniel Ackerman, Florida
Hi Daniel, Firstly, we’re happy you enjoyed the October issue. Thanks so much for contributing such a great comic! We hope you’ll send pieces to D’’ash in the future.
If you want to send over the proposal, we can definitely give you some feedback.
Good luck!
Best, D’’ash team
