随后,北京天悦学校创始人王君瑛女士致辞,作为中国以色列商会长久以来的支持者,王君瑛女士对以色列怀有深切的热爱之情。以色列于她而言,是人生的指路明灯。作为教育从业者,王君瑛女士对于光明节和教育的关系有着独到见解:光明节חנוכה的词根与教育 חינוך一样,在犹太思维中,教育是要点亮世界的,犹太教育的另一大特点,是关注老师自身的培养和自我成长,同时,又利用引导式和体验式的教学让学生们在课堂能够得到心灵路程的体验,体验到合作、创造和批判性的思考沟通。而不是一味地受到知识的灌输。孩子从小就接受能够自由的创造的教育的,能够进行深刻的哲思,正式这样的教育理念,使得以色列能够成为创新的国度。

After this speech, Mrs. Emma Wang, Founder of the JOY EL International Academy, spoke about how important this holiday was, and how Israel has made a positive impact on her life.
