David incorporated songs from these great poets which are still sung today by different popular Israeli artists. Some of the Piyutim, liturgical poems, that you might be familiar with include: L'cha Dodi and Adom Olam.
Jewish history is a 3 hour class every day and tomorrow we go to the Israel Museum and learn as we walk through the museum together.
This is my second child on EIE and I believe as a Jewish educator that this experience is so important for them. Yesterday as they discussed Halacha, Jewish law and what it means to follow Jewish law I had the chance to tell them as Reform Jews they need to know Halacha so they can decide for themselves what to do and what to follow. I looked at them and told them they are future Jewish leaders from each of the communities from which they are a part back in North America.

Special Todah Rabah to Baruch Kraus, who is the head of EIE. I hope to post more pictures of the other hard working faculty who make sure that all students are learning and loving to live in Israel!
I love spending time with my son, Ethan meeting his friends and seeing the community that exists on EIE. I am proud to see this high level of education for our Reform Jewish high school students and I look forward to seeing where these students will be in 10 years. I will I hope to call some of them colleagues, so here is to the HUC Classes of Mid 2020's.
