Davis Academy 5th and 1st Graders were treated to a very special visit from the Yemin Orde Youth Choir today. Why 5th and 1st? Scheduling!
The Yemin Orde Youth Choir is a group of Israeli high school students. They are here on a mission to raise awareness for their youth village-- Yemin Orde.
Our kids, particularly in 5th grade, took an INSTANT liking to them, and they to us. Here are a few tweets that capture some snippets of video.
It was powerful to sing "One Day" and "Salaam" as well as our own song, "Kol Yisrael" with people from 1/2 way around the world who, moments prior, we did not know.
That's the true meaning of "Kol Yisrael Areivin Zeh L'Zeh."
