The school’s chapter of the Jewish Student Union will hold its second annual charity basketball tournament in Hamilton Gym on Feb. 18.

The event aims to raise money toward scholarships for local students to travel to Israel. It is hosted on behalf of the national Jewish Student Union and the National Council of Synagogue Youth, organizations which sponsor annual Israel trips.

“It is a chance for people at NCSY and JSU from Harvard-Westlake and other schools in the Los Angeles area to get together over a really fun activity,” chapter head Allison Gorokhovsky ’17 said.
