Over 150 girls from the all over Belarus came to be part of the Yad Yisroel summer camp. Three weeks of joy, and inspiration—with nutritious meals that are so crucial especially for the children coming from impoverished homes—truly made this experience a memorable one physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Some of these youngsters are from families that sometimes can’t afford to put bread on the table – literally!
Thanks to the newly renovated Bielski Campsite, we can now give children an experience that they had never seen or dreamed about. Most importantly, as we have seen over the years, this camp experience is so often the first taste of Yiddishkeit for these children- which then often extends into their future; approximately 10% of these children go on to join the Yad Yisroel school throughout the year.
