Israel engagement requires education, interaction with Israelis and a constant reminder that the story of Israel is our story as a Jewish people. At Mirowitz, we nourish the students’ love for Israel and look forward to the day they experience Israel as an 8th grade community. Check out their blog here.
Recent studies show an alarming distancing from Israel by American Jews. Not so at Mirowitz! Our students know that Israel is their home, a home for all Jews, and a home and holy place to many peoples. They know that it is both the ancient land of the Bible and a modern land where scientists are making breakthroughs in technology, medicine and science. Our students know that Israel is filled with kids like them, who read Harry Potter in Hebrew, who love popsicles on a summer day and who live by the rhythm of the Jewish year.
They know that it’s the home of their “big sisters and brothers" who spend a year at school teaching about Israel through the ShinShinim program which brings recent Israeli high school graduates to Jewish communities as ambassadors. (We are thrilled that Alma will be a part of our school family during the 22-23 school year.)
