Mag­i­cal vis­i­tors

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life -

ONE-HUN­DRED IS­RAELI teenagers from UJIA’s part­ner­ship re­gion in the Galil will be hosted by 14 UK com­mu­ni­ties for the 2008 Magic Mo­ments pro­gramme.

The young­sters — who will be here for Yom Hazikaron and Yom Atz­maut — will visit schools and com­mu­nity cen­tres to forge ties with their Bri­tish coun­ter­parts. A high­light will be a Yom Hazikaron/Yom Atz­maut cer­e­mony which they will pre­pare and lead.

UJIA Magic Mo­ments chair­man Shar­man Ber­wald said that the an­nual scheme had a pro­found im­pact on par­tic­i­pants and those they en­coun­tered. “The young am­bas­sadors come with a sense of mis­sion to pro­mote the spirit of Is­rael.”

El­stree, Bushey, Kingston, Radlett, Muswell Hill, Pin­ner, Stan­more, North­wood, Chigwell, Maiden­head, Leeds, Liver­pool, Birm­ing­ham and Manch­ester are the host com­mu­ni­ties.
