At the end of November Partnership 2000 Beit Shemesh - Mateh yehuda- Washington - South Africa of the Jewish Agency, sent 7 Israeli girls to be counslors at summer camps in South Africa.
This type of Mission has been sent for the last 3 years. Talia Sudri, Navah Hoyland and Tamar Freundlich from Beit Shemesh joined the "Bnei Akiva" camp with 700 instructors and participants.
Gal Sabo (moshav mata), Ariella Lotsof and Naomi Sapa (Kibbutz Tzora) joined the camp of "Habonim Dror" with 700 instructors and participants.
Neta Ron (moshav Tzur Hadassah) joined the camp of "Netzer" with 120 instructors and participants.
The seven girls had a long training process in partnership 2000, in which they learned about the Partnership activities, the social background of South Africa, the Jewish community in South Africa and its development over the years and the different youth movements.
In addition, each team was assigned the task of writing a work plan for each region, and at the and of the process each girl left with a booklet full of activities about our region.
We are sure that the mission will be productive in the camps, and represent the region with respect.
