This year we began to work with the young children who were born in Israel. 64 children and teens, including non-Ethiopian Israelis, participated in our Ethiopian Heritage Summer Camp at Beit Lazarus in Talpiot, where they learned traditional Ethiopian dance, crafts, history and folklore, in addition to the usual sports and field trips. At the campís farewell party, the children exhibited what they had learned and created for their parents and friends.

The camp was sponsored by the IJCF and the Chantal Caray Community Youth Center "Beit Lazarus".
