All of these classes are offered at a variety of times throughout the week.

The Yom Haatzmaut Project, a relatively new blog with 15 talented writers, has started a new initiative called the Yom Haatzmaut Project. The Project, already reported on Arutz Sheva, asks the bloggers of, and bloggers all around the internet, to list the 4 accomplishments which make them the most proud of the State of Israel. The idea is that while constructive criticism is important, it is also important to look back every so often and get inspired by the positive accomplishments we have had. Through this positive outlook, hopes to gather enough inspiration to re-energize ourselves for, at the very least, another 60 years (and much much more) of successful nation building.
