Israel Photo of the Day - Chag Sameach!
This is a photograph taken by one of our Mishlachat members, who arrive in America to act as counselors in Jewish Summer camps. We are so excited to meet the new Mishlachat team this Summer! Chag Pesach Sameach and Shabbat Shalom!
Israel Photo of the Day - Garin Tzabar
As we prep for the Summer, another huge experience on the horizon for us during those sweltering months is the completion of another round of Garin Tzabar seminars in America. Garin Tzabar, founded in 1991, is a group formed for Diaspora Jews and children of Israelis who choose to move to Israel and serve in the IDF. Garin Tzabar provides for their participants a community which they may not otherwise receive. Each “Garin”, which means core or seed in Hebrew, is placed in a hosting Israeli Kibbutz, where they spend their breaks from the army, grow closer with each other and with their kibbutz, and adjust to Israeli life and culture.
Every August, Garin Tzabar groups which started their seminars in the previous December, make Aliyah, and begin the rest of their lives. We are so proud of them, and we are so excited to see what this Summer brings for Garin Tzabar!
Israel Photo of the Day - “Friday Evening at the Kotel”
This picture of the Kotel on Erev Shabbat makes us long for Israel. As the saying goes, “Libi b’Mizrach, v’anochi b’sof Maarav” - “My heart is in the East, and I am in the farthest West.” Shabbat Shalom to everyone - have a peaceful and relaxing weekend!
