The Bnai Aliyah program of Yeshivat Hesder Petach Tikva specializes in integration between guys from abroad and local Israelis learning in the Yeshiva. This Shabbat, they had the privilege to experience a community that lives according to their ideals. In Kochav HaShachar, American families who have made Aliyah integrate beautifully with the local Israeli families.
Anywhere in Israel has had another GREAT year setting up thousands of students! We hope you enjoy this short video which includes clips from Shabbat placements and our amazing Shabbatonim. We are looking forward to placing and hosting more students in 2012-2013! Stay in touch!
The yearly Shabbaton in Kochav HaShachar was a big hit! The girls from Midreshet Amit all have huge hearts as evidenced by their choice to learn Torah in a unique environment that couples learning with chessed activities with young children. These girls don’t just take a break and go do chessed. They LIVE with these children in a beautiful campus in Gilo, Jerusalem. The Shabbaton featured multiple panels with guests from the Yishuv and each of the students had 2 meals with families of the Yishuv. The special guests from Midreshet Amit were Rabbi Jason and Dara Knapel and guest Rabbi from Kochav Hashachar, Rabbi Ari Schwat. Looking forward to next year’s Shabbaton!
