Students Against Terrorism is a student-run organization associated with Yavneh Academy of Dallas. Our goal is to demonstrate solidarity with Israel and provide support for victims of terror in Israel. The organization is committed to raising awareness in Dallas about the devastating effects of terrorism on Israeli citizens.
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 combat terror 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.
Ohr Meir and Bracha: The Terror Victims Support Center provides assistance to unmet, unrecognized victims of terror, secondary victims, and their families. All those who receive help from this organization do not meet the requirements set out by Betuach Leumi (National Insurance Office) to receive benefits, or they are still waiting to receive help. Their goal is to restore the morale of families affected by terrorism. The $50,000 dollars we raise will be used towards purchasing items for weekly food baskets and distributed to over 400 families affected by terrorism.
Each team must raise a minimum of $200 in sponsorships that will be donated to Ohr Meir and Bracha: The Terror Victims Support Center. Additionally, teams that sign up by March 31 will pay a $33 registration fee or a $38 fee if they sign up between April 1-10. When registering, only purchase one ticket per team, not per person! All donations can be mailed in before the event to Yavneh Academy of Dallas (see address below) or can be turned in on the day of the tournament. All checks should be made out to Students Against Terrorism
