Sapir Academic College has canceled classes and exams on Wednesday due to the renewal of rocket, mortar and missile fire from Sderot.

The well-known institution, home to dramatic and other arts programs is located on the outskirts of the city of Sderot, barely a mile away from the Gaza border.

The institution said it would keep students informed as to when classes will resume. It is not yet clear how and when class time and exams will be made up.

On August 8, 2014, the director of the college, 71-year-old Dr. Nachmi Paz was wounded during a rocket attack when he was unable to make it to a safe space in time. A house in Sderot sustained a direct hit during the same barrage of Qassam rockets fired by Gaza terrorists that day.

When is “enough,” truly enough?
