Zodiya Vobitz kisses her son Dogu as he sets off for a Jewish Agency Summer Camp
at Ben Yakir
On July 16th, Kenyo Alebi (14) joined 88 other new immigrant children, ages 10-17, from the Meron Jewish Agency Absorption Center in Safed for a week-long summer camp at the Ben Yakir Youth Aliyah Village near Hadera. The children all looked forward to participating in an array of recreational activities including swimming, hiking, sports, arts and crafts and field trips as a break from the reality they faced, day after day in the cramped bomb shelters of their absorption center.
