Rabbi Gedaliah Oppen, HAFTR High School Judaic Studies Principal, went to Israel recently to visit the many graduates who chose to study there before embarking on their college careers. As the school’s mission statement is Am Yisrael, Torat Yisrael, Medinat Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael, the year in Israel is seen as an integral part of their hashkafah. Rabbi Oppen’s many visits to Israel and his close connections with the graduates in Israel and America illustrate the kesher between HAFTR’s College Guidance and Israel Guidance departments and the school’s alumni.
