Jewish Agency Chairman Zeev Bielski will be touring the absorption centers of Nahariya, Karmiel and Tzfat Sunday after a Katyusha landed in one such center in Tzfat last week, in an effort to reasure new immigrants and check that the facilities provide adequate shelter from attacks. The Jewish Agency is also running a project called "Putting Kids in the Center" to allow children from the north and the south to spend the summer in safety in the heart of the country. The United Jewish Communities and Keren Hayesod rose $1 million for the project on Thursday alone.
