The Prime Minister’s Delegation, including representatives from US federations, began its journey with visits to Jewish Agency projects in St. Petersburg, Russia, where they met with the Jewish Agency Chairman, and from there traveled to Israel.
On October 10th, they met with pupils from the Jewish Agency's Ben Yakir Youth Village for joint activities at the Ein Yael Living Museum. The pupils and the delegation members enjoyed making bamboo flutes, athletic competitions, a projects fair, and delicious food.
The encounter began with an ice-breaker game in which participants from the delegation and from the youth village asked each other two questions about themselves.
Amongst other things, participants spoke about their families, dreams, and some of their favorite things about the youth village.
Delegation participants enjoyed playing, crafting, and conversing with the youth village pupils, and in a short time, they all got along like old friends.
The meeting was accompanied by the Jewish Agency’s Vicki Angel and Liat Demoza, as well as the youth village staff, including its director and its counseling staff.
