Can’t believe it’s almost the last update we are sending you!
This week our lovely Shnatties joined a few AZYC and ZFA events, even our lovely south African Jason chose to take part of it (and tried to tell the other youth movements participants he is from Perth J).
On Monday, The AZYC has come together with Kids Kicking Cancer Israel to help raise donation for the families in need to make sure the programs in Israel continue running as well as creating new centers all around Israel. The participants on all movements’ Shnat 2017 cycled the ANZAC trail to raise funds for Kids Kicking Cancer. The funds raised in this project will go towards helping Israeli children and their battle with cancer. Although physically it was really hard, our lovely movement representatives – Morgan, Tom and Hannah did it, represented us with respect and worked towards this important goal. Kol Hakavod!
On the next day we all took part in a huge event marking the 100 year anniversary of the battle of Beersheba. We took part in several event trought the day – the opening of the ANZAC museum, dinner and a ceremony that attended by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and New Zealand Prime Minister Bill English and many more.
After this hectic day, we moved to Moshav Tzofar, not far from Lotan, and participated in the 2 days AZYC closing seminar with all the Australians Shnat groups currently in Israel. In this seminar, the Shnatties had the chance to meet again their fellow Australian friends, reflected on the past year and talked a bit about their return home.
This upcoming weekend our Shnatties will have time to say goodbye to their Israeli friends and families on Kibbutz before leaving to Sikkum (closing) seminar on Sunday.

Wishing you all a relaxing weekend and Shabbat Shalom!
