Video: Shaina & Ofek from the School Twinning Program

Last week, students and teachers from the Reali Matos Middle School in Haifa, Israel flew to the Bay Area to meet their "twins" at the Wornick Jewish Day School in Foster City.  The spent an incredible week together exploring Jewish pluralism, Israeli topics, and what it is to be a Jew and one's responsibility in this world. I had the opportunity to talk to a few of the students near the start of their week.  Although this was the first time they had met face-to-face, their classes had  begun correspondence with each other years ago.
