Akiba Academy of Dallas’ Middle School students express their connection to and love of Israel — in three words. They made a video of themselves holding placards with the three words they chose, and they are challenging all of us to do the same, in order to encourage others to identify with Israelis, stand with Israel and strengthen the Jewish people.
The innovative, heartwarming project is the brainchild of OTS emissaries Bat-Chen and Netanel Weill, graduates of the Claudia Cohen Women Educators Institute and the Beren-Amiel Program. As Dallas’ emissary couple, the Weills are teaching at Akiba Academy, where Netanel also serves as school rabbi, as well as working in the Shaare Tefilla synagogue and Bnei Akiva.
In three words: Kol.Hakavod.Weills!
