Zionist Caravan West

The Zionist Caravan 2014 – Bringing Zionism to the hearts of people!

5 Shlichim, 1 archeologist, Cape Town, 4 small Jewish communities, 5 meetings, 2 148 KM, 6 days, over 260 participants.

Every year the Zionist Caravan leaves Cape Town, in order to run informative, enjoyable evenings about Israel and to reconnect with the smaller Jewish communities along the Garden Route as well as to strengthen the support of Zionist Christian Communities there.

This year, in a joint effort with our partnership region in Israel (Partnership2Gether): Beit Shemesh Mateh Yehuda, we managed to bring Naveh Yogev, an employee at P2G, who is also an Archeologist.

After having a well-attended opening event in Cape Town on Sunday 8th of June, The Israeli Mishlachat left Cape Town for approximately a week

The Mishlachat represent the various faces of Israel - which includes members from all of the youth movements as well as from the Yeshiva of Cape Town. The Mishlachat come from different places in Israel (from Dimona in the south, through Jerusalem and its surrounds to the center of Israel) and come from a wide range of religious practice.

The Mishlachat held meetings with the communities in Oudtshoorn, Plettenberg Bay, Port Elizabeth and East London, attendance in all of these cities and towns far exceeded expectations. All of the audience participants enjoyed a fascinating presentation by Archeologist Naveh Yogev, telling them a little bit about the historical connection between Israelis and the land of Israel by using archeological artifacts.
Thanks to the generosity of Bridges For Peace in Cape Town, we were also able to give away copies of their December magazine which had an article about the hidden treasure on the Temple Mount.

The Zionist Caravan was used as a platform not only for formal engagement, but also for informal engagement though conversations with people regarding Israel and Aliyah. During the Caravan a meeting was held with a potential Olah from Port Elizabeth as well as a meeting with a Matric student from Plettenberg Bay, going on a Kibbutz-Ulpan programme next year.
