Hillel Students Support the IDF

Students from HOW's campuses showed their support for the Israeli Defense Forces at two separate events in October 2014.  On Thursday, October 23rd, students traveled to Temple Beth El in Chappaqua to hear personal stories from seven visiting IDF soldiers.  The at-capacity event, sponsored by Tzahal Shalom of Northern Westchester, compelled and inspired the more-than 250 adults and children in attendance.  

A few days later on Monday, October 27th, four of the soldiers who addressed the large crowd at Temple Beth El spoke with an intimate group during a class on the Arab-Israeli conflict at Purchase College.  This small gathering was arranged by a Purchase College senior who - impacted by his own Israeli history and experience - plans to join the IDF after graduation in May 2015.

Photos of the soldiers were not allowed due to security precautions.
