We are fortunate to have Sherut Leumi Shlichot and Morim Shlichim who infuse the customs and culture of Israeli society into the daily lives of our students. Our timeless connection to Eretz Yisrael and Am Yisrael is emphasized through special programming around Jewish holidays, special days in Israel, school events and programming is often done in response to current events occurring in Israel or in the rest of the world.The personal relationships formed through the Bnot Sherut and Morim Shlichim and the strong presence of modern Israeli culture make a deep impression on our students and instill a love and responsibility for Medinat Yisrael and Am Yisrael.
We are proud to have visits from prominent Israeli leaders who inspire our students during the year. Visitors in the past school year have included Ambassador Dani Dayan; MK Ayoob Kara, Minister of Communications; MK Ofir Akunis, Minister of Science and Technology, and Rav Yosef Zvi Rimon.Our Middle School students also participate in Israel advocacy training and our eighth grade Israel Advocacy team has presented their views on Israel to the Upper West Side community, Professor Alan Dershowitz, the United Nations, and at the Museum for Jewish Heritage. Our students have developed their advocacy and leadership skills in partnership with Stand With Us, AIPAC and NORPAC.
