Students reenacted the historic UN vote of November 29, 1947, voting on the plan to partition the British mandate into a Jewish and an Arab state, paving the way for the creation of the state of Israel. The students worked in multi-grade Mishpachot (family groups) to make flags representing the countries that participated in the vote, and then brought their votes forward. The reenactment ended with a heartfelt singing of Hatikvah.
