Dear parents, shnattim, bogrim, bogrot, communities and friends shalom rav,
We hope you are well!
This week was a meaningful one- Shnat M'ayan ended and most of our now ex-shnattim left Israel to tour the world a bit before returning home. Some of them are already back home, and we wish them and their families the best of luck! For our Northern Shnat Nof it means they are now the only shnattim around. To read more about their experiences on Kibbutz Lotan, read the corner below! To add to this, this week the last member of the group- Eve Phillips, arrived to Israel, and here is the post published by RSY- Netzer on Facebook:
"Today, we were delighted to see Eve Phillips head to the Promised Land and join the rest of Shnat Nof 5777 at Kibbutz Lotan.
We send her on her way with the same blessing as we offered the others...
May the One who blessed our ancestors, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, Leah, Zilpah, Bilhah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, bless and keep our chavera, Eve Phillips of Shnat Nof 5777, as she starts this new journey. May she face all the challenges that lie ahead with courage in her heart. May there be blessings on everything she does this year from the encounters she has with new people and new ideas to the hikes she does and the plans she creates.
Let us all support her this year- be it with an ear to listen to frustrations or with a finger to offer frequent Facebook likes.
