Dan Katz, Leanne Koch, Avi Lieberman, David Pearl, Alexandra Shapiro, and Zoe Yassky will be leaving today to participate in Ramah’s high school program in Israel Tichon Ramah Yerushalayim (TRY). TRY is an international high school program offering sophomores, juniors, and seniors a semester (February-June) of general studies equivalent to those in their home communities and an intensive curriculum of Hebrew, as well as Jewish and Israel studies such as is possible only in Jerusalem and Israel. Students travel throughout the country and spend time in such settings as kibbutz and Gadna. TRY offers a unique opportunity through which the Israel experience becomes an integral part of the student's personal development. Graduates return to their home schools with a deepened understanding of their Jewishness and a more mature sense of self. TRY is based at the Israel Goldstein Youth Village in Jerusalem and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges. Our high school department is also available to plan tailor-made academic programs for Jewish high schools.

We wish our campers the best of luck as they embark on this amazing experience.
