29 Aug Students in Tel Aviv hear about Bnei Menashe & Shavei Israel
Earlier this week, the Jeff Seidel Student Center in Tel Aviv was packed with college-age students from the United States, Europe and South America. These students, doing either a semester or a year abroad at Tel Aviv University, came to hear our own Laura Ben-David speak about Shavei Israel and the Bnei Menashe.
The students were engaged, asked lots of great questions, and a number of then only wanted to know how they can get involved.
The Tel Aviv branch of the Jeff Seidel Student Center is run by Rabbi Dov and Dena Lipman, who regularly bring speakers and other exciting and enriching programs to the center.
“Our students gained an incredible amount from Laura’s presentation,” said Dov Lipman.
“They were amazed by the wonderful work which Shavei Israel does. The students couldn’t stop talking about the inspiration which they received from Laura and the organization’s dedication to helping lost tribes find their way back to Israel. They will no doubt bring this story back with them to their campuses, thereby educating fellow students about an element of Israel which they never heard of before.”
