NSHA Welcomes the IDF Musical Ensemble

Have you ever had the opportunity to sing Hatikva with a unit from the Israel Defense Forces? Today our students did just that at one of the most moving assemblies yet at NSHA. The IDF Musical Ensemble traveled all the way to Cherry Lane to perform Israeli music and Chanukah songs for our students in Pre-K-Grade 5. Founded in 1948, the IDF Musical Ensemble performs for Chayalim all over Israel, during wartime and peace. Often our Chayalim are stationed in dangerous places where they can’t speak with or see family and friends. The IDF Musical Ensemble provides encouragement and morale through song and music. Some of the most famous Israeli musicians and singers started their careers in the IDF Musical Ensemble. For our students, seeing Chayalim in uniform and asking them questions about life in the army and being a member of the Musical Ensemble was truly a highlight!
Thank you to our #NSHAPTA for bringing the IDF Musical Ensemble to our school. We know it’s an experience we will never forget. #NSHALife
