JLGB earns its stars and stripes

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

EV­ERY­THING WAS fine and Yan­kee doo­dle dandy as the Jewish Lads’ and Girls’ Brigade adopted an Amer­i­can theme for its sum­mer camp, held near Colch­ester.

Sixty Is­raelis joined more than 300 JLGB mem­bers from across the coun­try for “Camp USA”. Fea­tures in­cluded an Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion, a “Su­per­bowl” con­test com­plete with cheer­lead­ers and a “colour war” chal­lenge test­ing sport­ing abil­ity and team­work.

Fur­ther­ing the Amer­i­can in­flu­ence, US em­bassy cul­tural at­tache Karen Hun­tress joined brigade pres­i­dent Lord Levy among spe­cial guests at open day.

PHO­TOS: ANTONY LEWIS AND STEVEN WIN­STON
