Three hundred students in grades 7–12 attend a school in Beit Shemesh. Most of the children come from populations with low socioeconomic status, and the school aims to provide higher education and offers studies in the computer field. A few years ago, the school established a special learning room where the teens receive reinforcement through individual learning and small groups for students at risk of dropping out. The special room was designed to be softer and warmer than a regular classroom and is open until late at night.
“Behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
Isa 60: 1-3
