DENVER ACADEMY OF TORAH wrote -The words Sherut Leumi mean national service, a program that young women can choose in lieu of traditional service in the Israel Defense Forces. Sherut Leumi volunteers are idealistic young women who volunteer their time to improve and support Israeli society. They bring their love of Israel, passion to change the world, and their devotion to the Jewish people to the work that they do. Sherut Leumi volunteers can work in various programs such as schools, special education, hospitals, geriatrics, nursing homes, health clinics, teens at risk, disadvantaged communities, immigrant assistance, and many other organizations. In their second year of service, they can apply to serve in Diaspora Jewish communities worldwide.
Denver Academy of Torah has been privileged to have Sherut Leumi volunteers for the past seven years at our school where they provide Torah, Hebrew language, and Israel based programming for the students. Their impact has been significant. Our students not only create strong bonds with the girls, but with the State of Israel as well. The students gain a personal connection to the land and the people there, a connection that will last a lifetime.
Their value to the school is priceless, but the actual costs are not.
Please help us keep this important program in our school by making a contribution to the program.
