While 19-year-old Meira (not her real name) may appear small for her age, after just one conversation it is clear that she is more intelligent and sophisticated than most young women her age.

Graduating toward the top of her class at Jerusalem’s prestigious Horev Religious High School for Girls, Meira opted to do a year of National Service after commencement in lieu of enlisting in the army. Since more than 95 percent of Horev’s student body typically chooses National Service over IDF service for religious reasons, Meira’s decision was in line with that of her peers.
