MERCAZ USA Newsletter — Winter 2007-2008

Todah Rabbah

MERCAZ USA thanks its friends and suppporters and especially Temple Beth Sholom and the Ravitz Family Kindness Fund (Cherry Hill, NJ), Congregation Beth Am (San Diego, CA) and the Little Neck Jewish Center (Little Neck, NY) for enabling us to sponsor three busloads of children from Sderot on "fun days" this summer.

Over a 3-day period in early August, the three MERCAZ buses were part of seven busloads organized by the American Zionist Movement to transport families from this beleaguered town to spend in Jerusalem a day of fun, which include touring the Knesset, visiting museums and picnicking in tranquility. In addition to the bus trips, funds that MERCAZ raised also were used to underwrite the cost of two children of Sderot to participate in the two-week day camp run by Netzach Israel, the Masorti congregation in the neighboring town of Ashkelon.
