Some 90 Canadian Jewish youngsters helped paint bomb shelters in Eilat at the beginning of the month and raised $2,000 towards the purchase of socks and underwear for soldiers serving in Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip. The youngsters were part of a counselor training program for the Canadian Young Judaea organization. In Eilat, residents have 30 seconds to safely reach a sheltered area upon hearing a Color Red rocket alert siren.
