Last week, two amazing schools raised money for Save A Child’s Heart. Leah Spungen, a Hasbara fellow from the University of Rochester, helped organize a dodgeball event at her school as a part of Israel Culture Week. The UR Israel Council hosted a dinner and dodgeball tournament on November 8, benefiting SACH, an Israeli based non-profit organization which performs life-saving heart surgery on children from countries where that would not be an option. SACH builds the infrastructure necessary to enable growth in cardiac surgery in these countries. AEPi, SDT, Hillel and the UR Dodgeball Club helped co-sponsor the event with the help of The David Project. Students donated the money that was raised to AEPi on their campus to help them reach their goal of helping a child at SACH.

Last Thursday, November 11, I joined more than 1,000 university and high school students, as well as community members, at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to mark the 1600th day that Hamas has held hostage Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
