Thursday, July 31st:Group 8 spent the day with Danny Siegel doing "Tzedakah Day!" Some of the USYers went to visit a facility where elderly people make toys for children. The USYers sat with them, sang with them, and made some toys too! Other USYers bought school supplies to donate to the Rabbanit Kapach, who they then met. She is a very special woman who has spent her life helping others, and even won the Israel Prize for her work. This afternoon the group learned about some other Mitzvah Heroes who have spent their lives doing for others. This evening they played fun drama games together!
News from the front: Ashleigh had an awesome day..."Cause I spent it with the little old people". The girls are getting ready for their last Shabbat in Israel and they are not so ready to come home.....so we talked to Ashleigh as they were starting their Friday it will be spent at the beach and then about 4 groups will be together at base for shabbat. And on Tuesday night they will be home!!!! I don't think they are as excited about that as we are. So you will have to remember to check back next week to see the pictures they brought home.
