Some 1,000 French high school students who arrived in Israel for a week-long educational trip took part in a celebratory event at the Jerusalem International Convention Center on Thursday.
Event guests included Jewish Agency CEO Natan Sharansky and Keren Hayesod France Chairman Richard Prasquier.
The graduation trip, entitled "High School Seniors in Blue and White," brought students to Israel from 25 Jewish schools in France.
This group marks the 11th cycle of the trip, a project initiated by the Jewish Agency with support from the Keren Hayesod. The group's tours are organized by the Jewish Agency's educational subsidiary Israel Experience.
