The Jewish Agency for Israel brought 40 youth from Georgia, including several from the war-torn city of Gori, for a week-long tour of the country; they visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem, greeted by the Rabbi of the Kotel (Sunday, Sept. 21), and enjoyed kayaking in the Jordan River.
The group will travel throughout the country, meet peers on programs in Israel and learn about opportunities to complete their high school studies in Israel.

The trip was underwritten by the United Jewish Communities – Federations of North America through the United Israel Appeal.
