This is very neat!

Are there still people from Sudan living at Kibbutz Keturah?
Yes there are. The Kibbutz is looking for help to send the kids from Sudan to summer camp in Israel.
One of them, who is turning 13 this week, is doing a "bat mitzvah" ceremony on Thursday night.
That's a Bar Mitzvah or a Bat Mitzvah? Who's having one? A girl from Sudan? (Interesting...)

Summer camp is a great idea. Let's discuss it in private messages?
you can email me at
I'm a big fan of the Arava Institute and Kibbutz Ketura. I spent some time there myself and highly recommend it!
