Standing with Israel
Students Against Terrorism is committed to raising awareness about terrorism and the devastating effects it has on Israeli civilians.
Students Against Terrorism – since 2003
In March of 2002, six Yavneh Academy of Dallas high school students attended a Yeshiva University sponsored leadership conference in Connecticut. It focused on active leadership and various ways to help the situation in Israel. After the insightful and motivational conference, the students returned to Dallas to share their thoughts with other students. The result was the formation of Students Against Terrorism.
