After more than two years of accreditation and a little Israeli bureaucracy, our Emunah Mechinat Lapidot army preparation program for young women has been certified and recognized by the Ministry of Defense. This is an important step in the development of this already highly regarded project meeting a growing need, as more and more religious women choose to enlist in the IDF.
Emunah Mechinat Lapidot is an innovative preparatory program for orthodox girls, high school graduates, who are planning military service. This is one of only two programs in Israel providing a rapidly growing need for emotional support, physical training and preparation, and spiritual reinforcement to young orthodox women who have chosen to to enlist in the IDF.
Happy Purim from Emunah's Children!
For the second year in a row, a student from the graphic arts department at Emunah's College of Art & Technology won first place in Yad Vashem's annual contest for the Holocaust Memorial Poster.
Hundreds of artists from all over Israel and the world competed.
The name of the student is Bat El Atar.
This year's theme, in honor of the 70th anniversary was The Integration of Holocaust Survivors to the Establishment of the State of Israel.
Bat El's minimalist poster cuts right to the heart of the subject. Her poster depicts two stars- the yellow star of David that Jews in Europe were forced to wear during the Holocaust and the blue Star of David, represented on the flag of Israel as the symbol of our rebirth and endurance. The stars are halves and unconnected to invite the conversation in this "open space" of the connection between the Holocaust and the establishment of the State of Israel.
Kol hakavod to Bat El Atar and to the dedicated staff at the Emunah College.
