Rabbi Yehiel Greniman brings us photos from this past week’s Jahalin summer camp activities on the Jabel next to Azaria. About 70 children participated in the camp organized by local very talented teacher, Ibtisan El Hirsch, and her two sisters with our help and that of the Catholic Comboni sisters.
Our three devoted volunteers did a wonderful job integrating face-masks, films of Tom and Jerry, and other creative activities into the very full program this year.
During the camp there were expressions of surprise, concern and even fear when some of the kids and parents learned we are an Israeli organisation. Nevertheless everyone was able to have fun together. Hopefully we have succeeded in breaking down some negative stereotypes and bringing peaceful coexistence a little closer in our involvement here.
