News From Ramaz
The Ramaz Middle School Rams participated last week in their first game of the Sderot Basketball Tournament, in which several yeshivot are playing to raise much needed funds for the Sderot community. Sderot, a town located in southern Israel and less than 1 mile from the Gaza border, is under constant threat of terror attacks by Kassam rockets and infiltration tunnels. The centerpiece of the town is the Hesder Yeshiva of Sderot, the largest Hesder Yeshiva in Israel, home to over 700 students. The Yeshiva provides communal leadership, social outreach, and religious services so desperately needed in the community. Sderot is the symbol of responding to terror with the light of Torah, Zionist ideals, and Jewish solidarity for Jews all over the world. Our boys are so happy to be answering the call and playing for Sdeort... and it didn't hurt that they won their first game 57-28.
