This week the Jewish Agency for Israel will be hosting 700 Jewish 12th grade students from France. The students will be spending their winter break in Israel checking out post-high school educational programs in Israel. They will also be touring the country as part of this "12th graders in blue and white" project.
On Sunday, the first group of 250 excited 12th graders touched down at Ben Gurion Airport. They were on a special El Al flight from Paris.
