Shinshinim from Israel Visit 4th Grade


What is a “shinshin”? “Shin Shin” stands for “Sh’nat Sherut” or “Year of Service.”  Shinshinim are Israeli high school graduates who defer their military service for one year in order to do volunteer work.  Dor Trainic and Ronit Pinsky are two such volunteers who have been specially selected and trained to work in our community.  The Shinshinim will be sharing interactive experiences with our fourth graders on a monthly basis, enriching our students’ Hebrew and strengthening their connection to Israel.  They will also be working with students in our Middle School.
