Greensboro and Beltsy Continue to Be Friends

For 12 years wonderful warm relations between two Jewish communities from Beltsy (Moldova) and Greensboro (North Carolina, USA) continue serving a good example of strong ties and connections over the Ocean. The main event of the year in the community is the Summer camp “Delet” (“The Door” in Hebrew) organized in Vadul-lui-Voda (35 km from Kishinev) and supported by Greensboro. 100 people from 10 years to 70, young couples, youth, people of middle age, whole families gather to have fun, learn, get acquainted with our history, traditions, wisdom and of course to meet Shabbat. Madrichim are both from Moldova and States.

“Every year we invent something new”, said Polina, Beltsy Hesed Yaakov Director. “Thanks to JDC efforts we established a real partnership with our colleagues and friends from Greensboro and see a good perspective for many years in the future”.

“We are happy to bring here new young boys and girls and those who already took part in similar camps”, told Boaz from Greensboro community. “This is extremely important to show how we can be partners, how we, Jews, live in various countries and continents having so many differences and still so much in common!”

Every year Greensboro mission visit the KJJC during their stay in Moldova. This time the group got acquainted with the welfare and cultural programs, took part in Museum performance restoring historical pictures of the past, communicated with the programs participants.
“Every time we come to KJJC we admire the wonderful work you do”, said Deborah Kintzing, the group leader. “Thank you for hospitality and you should know that we are proud of having so many friends in Moldova”.
