B’nai B’rith UK members donated Chanukah Gelt (Money) so that the children in the Absorption centre in Qiryat Gat, Israel could be given a present on Chanukah as is traditional. It was hoped that they would get a present on all of the eight days of Chanukah but due to local difficulties it was decided to give just one bigger present on the first night.
A number of older children from Kadima, together with two of the staff, packed the presents and prepared activities for Grade 1 and Grade 2 children – colouring, bowling and games like pass the parcel.
Each child received a Chanukia prepared by the children at Kadima.
The children thanked BBUK and wished us a Chag Sameach. To show their gratitude they made posters.
