Niles West Student Boaz Shields Emigrates From Israel

Shields and other student immigrants are profiled by Niles West News.


In celebration of International Weeks, Niles West News is profiling students who are immigrants to America.

Meet Boaz Shields, a native-born Israeli who moved to Skokie at the age of five. Boaz tells Niles West News that his family moved to America because of the requirement for all Israelis to serve in the military for two years when they turn 18.

Niles West News reports Boaz will always keep Israel close to his heart.
