Capstone Trip to Israel for Graduating 8th Graders To culminate nine years of Hebrew and Israel Studies in our schools, we are introducing our first-ever trip to Israel for an outstanding group of graduating 8th graders in school year 2017-18. In November 2017, students from our schools in Brooklyn and in New Jersey traveled to Israel for a 10-day trip to experience first-hand the country that they studied for nine years. Donations for future trips will help fund scholarships for those families who cannot afford a contribution to help pay for the trip.
School Technology While we have financial resources from the Department of Education to cover basic educational services, we do not have enough necessary equipment like e-readers, smart boards, and laptops in our NYC schools. In addition, many student families cannot afford top-notch technology at home, and our students rely on the school equipment to learn how to use computers, do Internet research and read e-books. Donations will support necessary technology purchases for HLA and Harlem Hebrew.
