Alumni Update: Ora Raymond
Ora Raymond (Heilicher '12) volunteered for Magen David Adom in Jerusalem in the summer of 2017. She passed her EMT test (60 hour first responder first aid training) and Hebrew Medical vocabulary test to be able to serve on an ambulance with Hebrew speakers.
This fall, Ora is returning to Lawrence University in Appleton, WI as a sophomore. She is in the National Honors Society and on the Dean's List. She will be the Vice President of Hillel Student Association, captain of her La Crosse team, and a Sunday School teacher at the local synagogue.
Way to go, Ora!
