Advocating for the State of Israel is a high priority for the students of the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls. Throughout the school year, SKA’s Israel Action Committee raises funds for organizations assisting Israeli soldiers and other charities, invites exceptional speakers including IDF veterans, and runs student leadership training sessions so that SKA students can become effective advocates for Israel.
Accompanied by faculty member Mrs. Tamar Bindiger, SKA students Shifra Cohen, Jaclyn Korman and Aliyah Tanami attended AIPAC’s Schusterman’s Advocacy Institute High School Summit in Washington on Sunday, Oct. 29 through Tuesday, Oct. 31.
With 400 students from around the country, Shifra, Jaclyn and Aliyah attended training sessions on lobbying, Israel and the media, and other important topics relevant to U.S.-Israel relations.
Attending the summit was a wonderful opportunity for the SKA students to become even more educated about the challenges of BDS and the importance of advocating for Israel on and beyond their school campus.
