Students in each of the AMIT network 100 educational held prayer sessions for the victims of the US Hurricane Sandy, which ravaged the Caribbean before wreaking havoc along the North American north-east coast.

"We have twenty-five thousand students," said Dr. Amnon Eldar, Director General of the AMIT Network. "Many of them [are] in Sderot, Ashkelon and Beer Sheva, and when they are faced with the danger of missiles, American Jews pray for them, support them and come to visit. Many Americans are great friends of Israel, and when they are in trouble we feel a real need to pray for them."
