Fourteen Year 11 boys from Sydney’s Moriah College now in Jerusalem on an Israel Study Tour (IST) program took to the basketball court for an impromptu match with students at the Boys Town Jerusalem school.

During their visit to the school, the Australian contingent also joined their new Israeli friends in packing Chanukah treats to be delivered over the holiday to children in hospital.

Sydney native and Moriah alumna Ilana Kaplan now lives in Israel and serves as Australian Development Coordinator for the school.

She told J-Wire: “The Boys Town Jerusalem students were delighted to meet, greet and even compete with the Moriah kids. Israelis and Aussies alike managed to communicate well in English and Hebrew, but the action on the basketball court brought out the best in them all. We invite Australian visitors to Jerusalem of all ages to come to meet and interact with our students on a wide range of future projects.”
