Posted on 07/19/2010 @ 12:15 PM
Week 2 of Impact: DC JAM is off to a great start.
This morning the students went to the United States Institute of Peace for a simulation on Arab/Israeli conflict. Each student was assigned a role to understand issues happening in Israel on a whole new level.
In the afternoon, we visited the Israeli embassy for a tour and a speaker on Israeli politics.
This evening, we will begin observing Tisha B’av. Our whole group will be attending a service lead by the DC Minyan at the DC JCC and will then have time to reflect on the experience.
