BCHSJS Hosts Young Leadership Trip to Israel

A delegation of 13 American students, who participated in a year-long Young Leadership course, sponsored by Partnership2Gether of the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey and hosted at the Bergen County High School of Jewish Studies, just returned home from a week-long mission to Israel. They spent the week with their Young Leadership counterparts from their sister city of Nahariya who hosted them in their homes. Together, they toured Jerusalem and then northern Israel, visiting Rosh Hanikra, the Lebanon border, the city of Acco and the Golan Heights. They also visited a firehouse in Mount Carmel where they heard about the recent devastating fires, met with children from the Tapuz Absorption Center and participated in pre-army training with Nirim, a school for troubled youth. They spent their last day in Tel Aviv visiting Independence Hall and the Michael Levin Lone Soldier Center and had dinner at the Sarona Market before they said their tearful farewells.
