Distance learning lets students see Israel up close

Semadar Goldstein is teaching a lesson about an “Israel moment” to ninth-graders during a Jewish studies class at Shalhevet School in Los Angeles. She talks about how she got on a bus in Jerusalem without any money, only to have the driver pay her fare and wave for her to sit down, suggesting she pay him back later. In the United States, she says, the driver would likely have shooed her off the bus.
