Israeli soldiers visit UA


Jewish students reunited with friends

Jewish UA students who traveled to Israel over winter break were temporarily reunited this week with four Israeli soldiers they befriended while visiting the country.

When the UA Hillel Foundation sent 40 students to Israel over the winter, the students met and befriended eight Israeli soldiers who were partnered with them by the Parallel Lives Project.

Ze'ev Cohen, 21, Omer Hartung, 20, Limor Bajayo, 19 and Chen Levinstain, 19, arrived in Tucson Wednesday at about 10 p.m. after a 30-hour trip from Israel and will stay until April 25. [Read article]

Both teams enter the matchup hot.

Applauding alphettes, maligning the men

While those of us with a Y chromosome might bristle upon hearing such humor, the fact of the matter is that we're quickly falling behind our female counterparts.

The AIFF is a 10-day long celebration of local and independent film, and it starts tonight. It is a great event for Tucson because it showcases national and international talent. But it is especially exciting because it exposes talent that has come out of the UA. [Read article]
