Yeshiva High School Students refuse to give journalists crash photos

The Pnei Chever Yeshiva High School is 1200 meters (about a mile) from where Assaf Ramon's F16 crashed on Sunday, and many students managed to film and photograph the f16 crash.

Reporters from all over descended on the hapless students, offering thousands of shekels for the exclusive photos.

However, not even one student acquiesced to the lure of money -- instead, they turned over all the photos and videos to the IDF who are investigating the crash.

Kol HaKavod.

Sounds like that's a yeshiva with quality education.

Exclusive Muqata update from a student at the Yeshiva: Some kids took photos with their cellphones and were offered a hundred shekels or so per photo, but the student who knew what he was doing, and used a digital camera was offered 2500 per photo. The army used his photos to decide where to search.

Nice. Kudos to those students.

Weelll, they have been replaying one cell phone shot of the crash on the news. I don't know if that was provided by the IDF or not.

Lots of people on the yishuv saw the crash, but THESE boys didn't give their photos to anyone. I know. My son learns there. It's quite a place. Thanks Jameel for putting this up!

The word verification for me is 'crepe'. Shouldn't that be 'waffle'?

I read about this on Arutz Sheva. Agreed-Kol haKavod to those yeshiva bachurim: values over profits.
(and yay, Ye'he--your son learns in a good place!)

Religious Zionists have often been abused. But they put the country first. Unlike Israel's national media whose scoop for the story is more important than showing respect for the dead or the grief of the nation.

Tell you a secret;
the media are worse than garbage.
But that's no secret.

These Yeshiva kids are Israel's hope.
