JEC Lower School Learns About Yom Hazikaron

JEC celebrated Yom Hazikaron with multiple special programs connecting our students to the pride, dedication and sacrifice of Tzahal. Each group heard from Rabbi Uzi Beer, principal of JEC Lower and Middle Schools, who served as a corporal in Tzahal. Rabbi Beer shared exciting and humorous Israeli army stories of training and dilemma based stories with older students. Fourth through eighth grade students also learned about a soldier who was compromised due to his high morals and ethics. As part of the Afikim Program, each class was assigned an Israeli soldier who they learned about and remembered. It was a moving and meaningful day which set the stage for the students to better appreciate Yom Ha’atzmaut.
