Holocaust Survivors Spend a Day with KKL-JNF

Over 400 people from Amcha centers in northern, central and southern Israel spent the day on an ecological tour of KKL-JNF sites, including Alexander River Park, the Ilanot tree arboretum, KKL-JNF water reservoirs, Herzl House in Hulda Forest, and more. The buses, guides, refreshments and concert at the end of the day were all a gift of friends of KKL-JNF from Melbourne, Australia.

"The people in our centers very much enjoy touring the country. The fact that a day like this is sponsored by KKL-JNF is extremely meaningful for them, because they experience it as recognition by society of what they went through in the past," said Anat Turner, deputy executive director of the Amcha center in northern Israel.

At around 3:30 PM, all the 400 participants in the days' activities arrived in eight buses at KKL-JNF's Ayalon Canada Park for a concert by Einat Saruf, one of Israel's popular singers.

Dr. Bella Kantor, the director of the Amcha center in Beersheba, thanked KKL-JNF "for providing us with an activity that takes us out of our usual framework. We have many terrible memories of the forests in Europe, but the KKL-JNF forests in Israel have the scent of home for us. Words cannot express how grateful we are."
