AMHSI radio station

Alexander Muss High School in Israel (AMHSI) has built its very own student radio station and music recording space on its campus in Hod Hasharon! Students can take a Radio 101 course or use the radio station for recording songs, interviews and other projects.  Students can also have the opportunity to speak with and interview diplomats, artists, politicians, donors, teachers and other distinguished individuals that visit the AMHSI campus!

Our state-of-the-art radio station was made possible by a generous donation from Gisele Ben-Dor and Eli Ben-Dor, AMHSI partner, Jewish National Fund (JNF), and TLV1, the cutting-edge English-language internet radio station broadcasting from Tel Aviv.

 

The AMHSI Ben-Dor Radio Station will be broadcasting from the Rappaport Music Room at our Hod Hasharon school campus.
