Israeli minister at MDS


MK Ayoub Kara, Israeli Minister of Communication and Cyber Security, visited Manhattan Day School last week to learn about the school’s advancements in communications and technology.

The visit began with a presentation of MDS’s 75-year history and a roundtable discussion that included the minister’s team and MDS administrators. The minister then entered the Smart Lab, where students from Grades 2 to 7 presented robotics and STEM projects. Next, MDS newsroom students interviewed Kara about his career in Israeli politics and his impressions of MDS. Finally, MK Kara spoke with sixth, seventh and eighth grade students.

“The students here exemplify what we need from young Jewish people around the world — to learn about Israel and its history and to perfect essential tools that Israel can use in the future,” he said. “I hope to visit MDS every year when I’m in the U.S.”

Head of School Ms. Raizi Chechik thanked General Nati Cohen for facilitating the visit.
