SINDIANA CREATES A MOVING VIDEO
To raise awareness of breast cancer and the importance of testing and early detection the students at SAE’s Sindiana Arab Youth Village High School for Leadership created a moving video. The students did all the planning, interviewing, filming, editing and producing for a unique a heartfelt 5-minute film. Take a look here at the video (in Hebrew and Arabic).
Many girls, mothers and women of various ages and backgrounds, including women who have recovered from the disease, appear in the film to encourage other women, everywhere, to get tested and maintain their health. Photos of some of the participants appear on this page.
The key message — Your health is your responsibility.
Founded on the principles of community involvement, pluralism, social equality and academic excellence, Sindiana provides a holistic educational framework, offering more than 400 students in grades 7 through 12 personal development, strengthening of his or her academic and social skills, involvement in Israeli society and cultivation of activist leadership inspired by their Arab culture.

STEINBERG TURNS PINK
Zohar Hyun wanted to pubicly express her support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So the Steinberg Residential Educational Residence student in Kfar Saba decided to color her hair pink.
A few friends followed her lead, soon followed by others. Ultimately, more than 50 students, assisted by four volunteer hairdressers, were sporting a pink coiffure.
It didn’t take long before both national and local press coverage carried the Steinberg message of encouraging awareness of testing and early detection of breast cancer around the country.
Thanks to students, and the volunteers, for this imaginative and effective outreach.
