Chamberlain Hrdlicka partnered with the Atlanta Jewish Committee to host a group of 30 Israeli students the week of Sept. 11-Sept. 18. The students are part of the Atidim program which helps Israelis pay for their education in exchange for a commitment to work in public service in Israel for a minimum amount of time. [The program is analogous to the ROTC.]
For the week they were in Atlanta, the students focused on many public service oriented issues, specifically studying our state and city government. On Wednesday September 14, they spent time at the State Capitol. In addition, the students had lunch at Chamberlain Hrdlicka at which several lawmakers and lobbyists discussed how they've dealt with creation sciences, charitable choice and the Ten Commandments among other church and state-related issues.
