The Israeli high school students in Hedera, applauded when Prisoner of Zion Sylva Zalmanson and her daughter, filmmaker Anat Zalmanson Kuznetsov walked on stage after the screening of Anat's documentary "Operation Wedding". It was a particularly exciting evening. About 250 students stood up, cheered and whistled in honor of Sylva Zalmanson.

We were extremely touched by the wonderful 8th grade teacher, Alisheva Kronman, at "Amit" middle school in Be'er Sheva, who screened Operation Wedding for her pupils and also provided them extensive background information. The 14 year-old students, whose parents were mostly from the Former Soviet Union, responded enthusiastically to the film and even created a poster in Hebrew in honor of Operation Wedding.

We asked the teacher to interview the students and ask them about their impressions of the film:
