Pre-Maccabi Group Visit to Ashkelon
On July 19th we hosted the pre-Maccabi group - these are teens who are participating in the Maccabi games and will be in Ashkelon for the weekend of 29th-31st.
Twenty Maccabi teens from Baltimore came two weeks earlier to travel in Israel and together with their counselors, spent an afternoon in Ashkelon.
Einav Koren, our new overseas coordinator, organized a special volunteer activity for them. First they visited the Ashkelon teen Center and met Dafna Biton and the Youth Council teens, and then together the Baltimore Maccabi teens and the Ashkelon teens ran a fun arts and crafts project at Halperin Senior Center. The seniors decorated useful tin containers, for their rooms, with the help of the teens.
We are looking forward to seeing all the Maccabi teens again this weekend.
