Meet Meshy, Guy, Noa and Rotem - recent high-school graduates who have chosen to postpone their Israeli military service to spend the year in our community bringing Israel to our preschools and religious schools, adult-education programs, local high schools and dayschools, and Jewish Senior Services.
