July 7, 2008 / 4 Tammuz 5768
Terry Rubenstein, Director of the Meyerhoff Foundation in Baltimore, and her sister, Lee Myerhoff Hendler, visited Jewish Agency summer camps during their solidarity visit to the Gaza perimeter communities.
During Ms. Rubenstein and her family's visit to the "Afikef Camp", they chatted with the children and their counselors. Accompanying the tour was Mr. Yitzchak Shavit, the UJC Vice President.
Later in the day, the delegation climbed up to an observation post for a bird’s eye view of the region and visited the home of Sima and Haim Shkuri, the last home to suffer Kassam damage before the cease-fire went into effect. The visit concluded with a visit to the Kassam missile exhibit at the Sderot police station.
