Some of the latest exciting alumni news
Medlife Trip to Peru
Herzliah graduates represented 2/3 of the students who went on the recent MedLife trip to Peru during the winter break to work with people from low-income communities and help improve their access to medicine, education, and community development initiatives. “I was truly humbled and proud of the difference we made in Peru in the communities with low-income families. Leading a group of 30 students was challenging, but very worthwhile after seeing the great success of this trip. Hopefully, this will be the first of many acts of Tikkun Olam”. Noah Abitbol ’16. Graduate David Bouhadana ’16. said, “After seeing so many smiles, this experience helped me understand the importance that Tikun Olam has in our world. I hope that our actions will help inspire others”, David Bouhadana ’16.
Leading the Way Into Tomorrow
The Azrieli Family has a deep connection to the Talmud Torah and Herzliah family. Matriarch, Stephanie Azrieli was the Talmud Torah librarian for many years, while three of the Azrieli children – Naomi, Sharon and Danna are Herzliah graduates. The Azrieli Foundation has donated $15M for a new Herzliah building. Our schools have now rebranded as Les écoles Azrieli Schools. Talmud Torah elementary school and Herzliah High School each retain its own individual name and identity.
