Yeshivat Hakotel to honor overseas students in the IDF

On Sunday, October 12, 2014, the first day of Chol Hamoed Sukkot, Yeshivat Hesder Hakotel, in Jerusalem's Old City, will hold a tribute dinner honoring long-time board member and supporter, Mr. Kurt Rothschild, and his wife, who recently made aliyah from Toronto, Ontario.

The yeshiva will also use the occasion to honor the many graduates from their Overseas Students Program, who stayed in Israel to voluntarily enlist in the IDF.
