Picture of the Month A special guest - Minister of Education Naftali Bennett - joined our Jerusalem Region’s final tournament. After speaking with and posing for photos with the children, the Minister kicked off the tournament. And then, the Minister couldn’t resist joining in the game between the Tsur Baher and Geulim schools. Minister Bennett said: “The Equalizer found the precise formula for successfully developing each child in his/her favorite area, while at the same time improving his/her studies. Children throughout the country, across all sectors of society, learn about themselves, achieve each day and succeed much more as a result. I especially like the way the program integrates love and inclusion, along with uncompromising demand stemming from faith in the children.” This picture was posted on our Instagram and Facebook.
