KJA's Camp Tikkun Olam program began yesterday. Ethan Snow, Gabe Olenik, and Samantha Hull left for Hadera-Eiron Israel with our program director, Melissa Treece. They will be in Hadera for two weeks then return with their new Israeli BFFs (best friends forever) for two more weeks in Knoxville and the southeast. If you would like to meet the Israeli kids and their staff, learn about the program, or just have an enjoyable evening, join us at the AJCC on July 28 for Israel Night.
