I have nothing but overwhelming praise to offer for the intense levels of organisation that went into making my internship at the Israel Museum a success in every possible way. My work at the museum was varied, fascinating, and ultimately completely beneficial to my learning and experience.

This was the most incredible 4 months I could ever have wished for, and I cannot thank SAFIM enough for extending this opportunity to me. It has made an everlasting impact on myself as a person as well as my career – and I cannot wait to see where it will lead me.

SAFIM Intern at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem

The SAFIM Internship has been an amazing opportunity to experience many different departments within the Norval Foundation. I have learnt so much from the experience, professional and otherwise.

I have truly enjoyed my work and the people I work with, and I look forward to being able to carry on doing so in the future! I am aware of what an amazing opportunity I have been given, I don’t take it lightly, and I thank the SAFIM team profusely for giving it to me.

SAFIM Norval Foundation Intern

I would like to express my gratitude to SAFIM for the opportunity to spend 3 months at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.

During my time at the Museum, I worked with several departments, including African and Oceanic Art, the Youth Wing, the Shipping Department, Asian Art, European Art and in the Database Department.

I have many good memories of Israel and the Museum, and I would love to share the knowledge that I gained from interning at the Museum within galleries and Museum around South Africa.

All I can say is thank you for the most stimulating, fascinating day! We are all so totally inspired, I cannot thank you enough for the unique insight into a world I had no idea about

Our tour guide was amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their time at the Museum. We went through all 3 of the current exhibitions: How Long is Now, Fields of Abstraction and Drifting with Magritte. So amazing that the first 2 exhibitions were all with items that are in the Museums Archives!

A great experience!

We loved it and could have stayed the whole day. A million thanks to SAFIM for organising our wonderful morning.

We have just returned from a beautiful day at the Israel Museum. An absolute treat! We had an exceptional guide and enjoyed every moment. We feel hugely privileged to have experienced such an amazing day. Thank you to SAFIM for putting this special day together for us.
