Involved children

Do you think that today’s children are not involved enough in society? Think again. This week, 100 pupils from city public (religious and secular) schools – student council members – met on Wednesday to discuss ways to encourage leadership and involvement, initiative, change and social activism. These are not mere words for these children, studying in the fifth and sixth grades across the city, as they meet once a month to debate these issues. On the agenda: a visit to the Knesset (scheduled for January 17) and meetings with local community leadership.
