At Bialik-Rogozin School, shooting baskets with Josh Gomes

Josh Gomes discusses the game in "Hebrish/Englew"
with several players on the Grades 8-9 Basketball Team
The compelling educational vision and innovative practices of the famed Bialik-Rogozin School, in Tel Aviv, draw hundreds of volunteers, including my friend Josh Gomes, an American professional basketball player winning points for Israeli teams several years.

Josh scored big on his visit with the Grades 8-9 Basketball Team (they captured third place in the 2011 Tel Aviv Basketball Competition). The team's makeup reflects the inner-city public school's international student body (nearly 900 Jews, Christians, and Muslims from 48 countries) — with roots in Israel, Sudan, Darfur, Ghana, Sierra Leone, the Philippines, Eritrea, Russia, Dominican Republic, and Columbia, among other countries.
