Hebrew speaking children who participate in a Web-based virtual classroom had an in-the-flesh reunion in Kfar Chabad, Israel.

The more than 70 classmates, who are children of Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries stationed across the world, met each other – some for the first time – and their teachers, and participated in a grand banquet.

Their classes are the Hebrew-language version of a virtual school run under the auspices of the Shluchim Office in Brooklyn, N.Y. The program is designed to provide a top-notch education for those for whom a local Jewish school is not an option.
