In a surreal moment captured on camera, tens of local Haitians were taught to sing Shalom Aleichem in Hebrew by Israeli volunteers from ZAKA, Chief Operating Officer Dovie Maisel and volunteer Dano Monkotavitz.
Israeli emergency volunteers from ZAKA rescued eight students from the rubble of a flattened university building in Port au-Prince, Haiti.
The six-team ZAKA worked for 38 hours with a Mexican military team to rescue the students, continuing over Shabbat.
Commander of the ZAKA mission to Haiti Mati Goldstein told Ynet:“With all the hell going on outside, even when things get bad, Judaism says we must take a deep breath and go on to save more people.”
Jonathan Hoffman, co vice-chair of the Zionist Federation, was told he was "not welcome" after revealing his Jewish name at a pro-Palestinian meeting at SOAS.
Mr Hoffman raised concerns during the meeting about the presence of Bongani Masuku, a South African trade unionist who the South African Human Rights Commission have found guilty of inciting hate towards Jews.
Pro-Palestinian attendees of the meeting booed Mr Hoffman and shouted "Jewish" at him while he read out his question for Mr Masuku.
