For the past 3 months, a group of EMIS students met once a week with Tzurit Yehuda of Gevim Group, for an elective mediation course. On May 29, we all met for the last time this year, in order to evaluate and hear from the students what they took from this experience. Some indicated that they are already using the skills and tools learned in their daily life. As roommates, they needed to learn how to share space and respect each other. This learning process take time and patience and despite everyones efforts they sometimes run into issues. The terminology and skills they acquired in this class assist them to dissolve tensions and reach solutions among their peers!
One important skill they learned was to actually listen to, and not only hear each other. Attentive listening is a major roll of a successful mediator!
The intention of Ben Dvash, head of Hakfar Hayarok boarding school is to make this first cohort class the mediation body for the entire school, where conflict of all sorts can be resolved. CRC is proudly sponsoring this initiative! We will resume the class upon the students return to school in September 2018, and will open a new one for incoming students!
Good luck and hats off!
Another school year is coming to an end, and on May 24th, 2018 EMIS 12th grade graduation ceremony took place at Hakfar Hayarok. Congratulations to the class of 2018! Dream big! Reach higher!
Listen above to Tzili Charney's message to the graduates of 2018!
The eagles are coming!
CRC in cooperation with The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI) sponsored the Eagle Project. On May 23, 2018, EMIS 11th grad students traveled to the Hay-Bar Carmel to learn about the preservation of eagles in Israel and to place a GPS tracker, on one of them before setting him free.
The vultures bred at the Carmel Hay-Bar are reintroduced into the wild as part of a nation-wide project called Taking Israeli Raptors Under our Wing. The purpose of the project is to increase the population of vultures which has declined in Israel in the last few decades. After a short film about the Hay-Bar, and an explanation by the rangers, the student were introduced to a gorgeous Griffon vulture. This injured vulture arrived to the Hay-Bar just several weeks ago from... Syria! The rangers were contacted by a Syrian who found it and transfer it to the Hay-Bar via a special gate on the Israeli-Syria border. Although Israel and Syria do not have official diplomatic relations, this gate is part of IDF's Operation Good Neighbors, that helped more then 4000 Syrian refugees to receive medical treatment in Israel since 2013!
With CRC sponsored GPS tracker, the rangers, together with EMIS students, will be able to follow his route and even provide help in case of emergency! Beautiful and healthy, the eagle is now back in nature, join together with his peers roaming the skies of the Mediterranean again! To learn more about the Hay-Bar, please click here.
