THE Merseyside Jewish Representative Council welcomed a UJIA Magic Moments delegation to Liverpool on Sunday.
The Israeli delegation, consisting of six teenagers — Lena, Anastasya, Romy, Erez, Ido and Itai together with their leader Merav — spent Sunday evening enjoying 10-pin bowling with their host families.
The teens are from the Anne Frank School, which is twinned with King David High School.
On Monday, they visited Merseyside Jewish Community Care’s Monday Club Yom Ha’atzmaut event where they entertained and chatted with the clients.
They then headed to Stapely Care.
The delegation ran activities with the Jewish Lads’ and Girls’ Brigade on Monday evening.
The following day, the delegation joined Rabbi Avremi Kievman’s weekly ‘coke and crisps’ session with King David High School pupils and then later sang and danced with pupils at King David Kindergarten.
Wednesday morning was spent at King David Primary School before they delivered a powerful Yom Hazikaron presentation based on the Ma’alot School massacre of May, 1974.
The evening ended with a brief Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations.
