Today started off early with a trip to Rambam Hospital in Haifa to do some improv with a couple hospital clowns. Next we went to the Baha’i Gardens overlooking Haifa and had a discussion about religion and it’s impact on the world.

Next on our itinerary was lunch in a nearby market and a trip to the multicultural city of Shefaram where Druze, Christians, and Muslims live in harmony. There we heard from Mr. Jabbour about how things have changed since before the end of the British Mandate.

Finally we learned about the Druze religion and ate some Druze food before driving to Hanaton and settling in for the night.

Signing off from Bontour bus 688!

Camp JRF is now Camp Havaya.

Worry not! We have a new name but, deep down, we’re still the same incredibly diverse and welcoming community where kids explore Judaism in their own ways and become the best versions of themselves.
