Special Program with IDF Soldiers
Special Presentation by IDF Officers
Thursday, December 11, 2014
5:00 pm-7:00 pm
Abrams is happy to present a very special and unique opportunity for our students and AHA families to attend a presentation by a special delegation of IDF officers who served most recently in the conflict in Gaza, Operation Suk Eitan.
The officers will describe the conflict faced by Israel this summer, discussing the conflicts of soldiers in the battlefield and the struggle Israel continues to face in world opinion.
These brave soldiers represent all aspects of the Israeli military including ground forces, air force and the Israeli navy. They have all been awarded symbols of recognition of valor in battle, risking their lives to save others and making critical decisions under fire to organize and succeed in intense battles.
Everyone is invited to attend the girls’ basketball game from 4-5 pm (AHA vs. Pennington) and the presentation by the IDF soldiers at 5:30 pm. At this time, in light of the recent tragic events in Israel, it is more important than ever to show support for Israeli soldiers.
*Attendance at the dinner with the soldiers is limited to the 7th and 8th grade students, but all are invited to attend the presentation.
*Attendance by 7th and 8th grade students is mandatory. Students will share a light dinner with the soldiers at 5 pm, followed by a presentation by the IDF officers.
**Parents must arrange to pick up their children promptly at 7:00 pm!
