A group of about fifty children from Netivot, accompanied by their parents, went on a trip to northern Israel for a welcome break, thanks to a contribution from friends of KKL-JNF in Germany. It is not easy to live in southern Israel, in the shadow of ongoing attacks from the Gaza Strip that target civilian communities. Residents of southern Israel are determined to cope with the security situation, however, and they make every effort to maintain their routines. Since Operation Pillar of Defense, the KKL-JNF Education and Youth Division has dedicated itself to supporting these communities, providing relief trips for the children and their families. KKL


“It’s fun to go on a trip with family and with friends from school,” said twelve-year-old Nof Cohen. “It’s a chance to leave the stress in the south behind. We are resting from our experiences and gathering strength to go on.” Her friend, thirteen-year-old Nitza Asoulin, was also enjoying the break from the routine. “We’ve gotten used to the red alerts, which have become part of our life, and it’s nice to get away and enjoy a trip in the north.”
