I strongly recommend Benny Powers’ work as a tour guide of Israel and as an educator. I have known him for the past two years as director of his tour guide training program at Machon Lander in Jerusalem.
Benny was one of the most conscientious and proactive of students. He consistently demonstrated curiosity, exceeding what was asked of him in probing and mastering a wide variety of subjects. As a classmate, Benny was a true mensch, helping other students when they struggled with difficult subjects, and sharing generously his own materials with others. He also is a fantastic guide: his past experience performing has helped make him a lively and engaging presenter, especially suited to working with teens and young adults.
I recommend his work for Birthright and other groups without reservation
