Messianic Children And Youth Take Refuge
| Eitan Shishkoff |

Nestled into a hillside north of Jerusalem, at the entrance to the famous pass between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem lies a lovely summer camp facility. What began as a summer camp, conducted by one of our neighbor Russian language congregations has now become a small refugee camp for children and teens. As the congregation's children began their camp activities the Katyusha rockets began to fall among their homes in the Kriyot.

During the following week, about 10-15 Tents of Mercy teens finished their own summer camp. Our youth leaders suggested that our teens join the existing camp of younger children both to help out and to stay out of harm's way. For the past 10 days, approximately 45 Messianic children and teens along with about 10-15 adults have been camping in tents, cooking on an open fire, taking outdoor showers. It's "camping" but it's not a picnic!
