Ariel Blumstein, Avi Orlow, Noah Schwartz and Josef Silverstein were chosen to represent Rambam Mesivta at the annual Schusterman Advocacy Institute High School Summit in Alexandria, Virginia.
The conference hosts over 400 students from across the nation in an effort to educate them on the latest issues impacting the American Israeli relationship. This leadership conference, sponsored by AIPAC, requires candidates to be self-motivated, Israel-oriented, disciplined and politically-minded.
“We are fortunate to have so many bright, mature talmidim dedicated to klal Yisrael,” said Rosh Mesivta Rabbi Zev Meir Friedman. “It is hard to choose only four; however, the young men going truly represent so many others in Rambam and will undoubtedly come back and share their experience with our chevra.”
Rambam has a long-standing history of community activism and pro-Israel advocacy. Principal Rabbi Yotav Eliach teaches a college-approved course on religious Zionism, has lectured nationally and has recently authored a book teaching the tools of pro-Israel advocacy.
