Sviva Israel is continuing to solidify and intensify the working relationships of the schools in the Arad - Tamar / New Jersey Delaware Partnership.
On the week of Tu Bishvat ten Partnership Eco Connection schools will be running a marathon of joint video conferences. The first joint Tu Bishvat video conference will take place on Tuesday February 7th and the last Tu Bishvat Video Conference will take place on Sunday February 12th.
Throughout the year students and the teachers in the Eco Connection program are meeting with our local educators: Avishay Levi Hevroni (Arad) Alayna Karp (Central and Monmouth N.J.) and Levi Gershkowitz (Cherry Hill N.J. & Wilmington DL).
During their tri weekly meetings the students learn of their Jewish environmental heritage and communicate with their peers in their partnered schools via the Eco Campus blog and through this years’ Havdalah Spice Bag Exchange program.
We will be running another marathon of Video Conferences between Yom a Haatzmau’t and Yom Yerushalayim. We are beginning preparations for the April 24th visit of the 8th grade students of Kellman Brown Academy with their peers in the Ort School.
