Children from the Jewish Agency’s Tzahal 9 Absorption Center in Safad went out on a joint activity with the Federation of Zionist Youth (FZY) Movement from England.
The children and the guests from England participated in a joint excursion to the Banias.
At the Banias square the English played party games with the children and the bonding was beyond words.
Afterwards, everybody took part in a walk through the Banias nature reserve followed by the rewarding activity of cleaning up the reserve.
Congratulations poured in from the many hikers passing through the nature reserve who all lauded the cleanup campaign. This trip is the forerunner of future activities which will continue throughout the year and will culminate in a joint bar mitzvah celebration which will take place next summer.
The English invited the bar mitzvah boys to see the football match between Israel and Estonia. On Wednesday a group of emotional and fired up children journeyed to watch the match at the Ramat Gan Stadium.
