This week in grade 8 we learned about the Ma’abarot in Israel. In the 1950’s the Ma’abarot provided housing for Jewish refugees and Jewish immigrants arriving to the newly independent State of Israel. The Ma’abarot were much more habitable than the previous immigrant camps. We spoke about some of the difficulties the the new immigrants faced and the students took part in an interactive activity that simulated how the immigrants needed to work together despite speaking different languages.
We look forward to our exciting Nuit Blanche program with the grade 7 and 8 students this weekend.
