Rabbi Yehiel Grienimann bring us news from the OT department
We are still following events in agricutural and settler harrasment in the West Bank. We are also very busy preparing for the Jahalin Bedouin summer camps which will be needing volunteers (Please contact us if you can assist) during late June and early August. (June 24th – July 24th in the Jable, 30th June – 10/7 in Abu Hindi). We are also working on a program of help redigging wells with Palestinian farmers in the South Hebron Hills along with a couple of groups of overseas volunteers soon to arrive. volunteers continue weekly lessons for Bedouin kids in English and Hebrew.
On the 20.5.2012 we accompanied by phone and in ongoing contact with the army the barley harvest in the village of Yanoun which has had many problems with settler neighbours and the army near Mehula, and during the week in a number of other places (Ein Abus, El Genia) where there have been similar access problems again.
All this as well as dealing with the ongoing suspected settler violence and vandalism, as was the case recently in the area near Yitzhar.
