Ambassador Danny Danon, Israel's Permanent Representative to the United Nations invited us to attend the opening exhibition, Israel's Humanitarian Aid Around the World. Although it was a late evening event, freshman Shira S., sophomores Charles S., and Adam V., juniors Gail H., and Ella R. and senior Ilan S. signed on without ever expecting to have such an eye-opening, informative and impactful experience. All too often, we view Israel only through the lens of military operations as the imperative need for the IDF to keep Israel secure and safe is on-going and essential. Most of us do not know about the humanitarian efforts that the IDF extends to countries around the world when disaster strikes. We listened in awe as we heard about the 2010 delegation to Haiti following the mega earthquake where Israel treated over 1100 patients, the 2013 delegation sent to the Philippines to set up a field hospital following the typhoon strike, and in 2016 as part of "Operation Good Neighbor,"...

Special in Uniform, an innovative program that integrates youth with disabilities into the Israel Defense Forces, came to the Middle School to present a program for the 8th grade. Students learned about how Israelis with special needs find unique and important ways to serve in Israel. To understand some of the challenges that these soldiers face, eighth graders participated in activities such as beading and puzzles where they were instructed to use only one arm. Later, students were given a set of instructions that read in a way that mirrored the dyslexic perspective. Students were inspired that despite these challenges, Special in Uniform participants are able and willing to serve to their full capacity - and they hope to meet some of these soldiers on their upcoming Israel trip!
