Tuesday was a big day for our students. They went on a special tour of Temple Mount and had the opportunity to see the Dome of the Rock up close. It was crazy thinking that 3000 years ago people were cutting massive stones out of the earth and then hauling them up for the construction of the temple. For most of us, it was incredibly surreal to be at the holiest place in Judaism, and we learned about the history of the Temple Mount itself. Many of the students were in awe of the beautiful mosque. We are so lucky that we are in a time of peace, so we were are able to go up the Temple Mount and to visit this site which is so important to both the Jewish and Muslim people.
It was incredibly remarkable to have the opportunity to see such an historic site that’s important to so many people.

My main task is to assist with editing, broadcasting, and filming. Whether that’s operating a soundboard for a live televised politician or cutting certain segments from the March of the Living video that aired last year, I’m just helping out however I can and doing what is needed of me to help the company out.
