As part of the school's leadership programme, a group of four 10th grade graduates arrived for an in-depth and comprehensive tour of Israel. During the visit to the Dalton and Shefer settlements (in the Merom HaGalil region) the students experienced a taste of the rural way of life in the settlements: visits to the cowsheds, collecting eggs and visiting the guest houses.
Later on, the students met with Ms. Keren Petel, head of the Merom HaGalil Minhelet, who explained to them about the challenges that are faced in the peripheral areas in Israel, and the involvement of the UJIA in the region.
