Toulouse Jewish students tour Israel


(JTA) — The Jewish Agency brought to Israel a group of students from the school in Toulouse where an Islamist militant killed four Jews earlier this year.

Yaffa Monsonego, who lost her daughter Miriam Hanna, 8, in the attack on March 19, accompanied the students. 

The students from Ohr Hatorah school came to Israel as part of a Jewish Agency program that organizes tours for 12th graders from Jewish schools across France. More than 800 students from 20 French Jewish schools are participating.

Since it was launched in 2003, the "High School Seniors in Blue and White” program has brought 7,697 students to Israel.
