July 2007

RSM.Louisville helped welcome 20 kids from war-stricken Sderot, Israel to the US this summer, so that they may have a

normal childhood for five weeks...Nine of these children attended RSM camp in New Hampshire and the rest attended a

boys' camp in Boston. Those kids that went to RSM Camp presented an original play, Children of Sderot, written and

produced by Masha Rifkin at two locations in Boston and in Brooklyn, NY. While they were at camp, over 40 qassams

 fell on their home town. They have returned home...

Boston Globe article:

http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2007/07/25/the_loudest_memories/

Our future project is to build a safe playroom in Sderot. Since the qassams began falling in Sderot, after-school activities

for children have disappeared. We want to give them their childhood back...

To find out how you can help these kids, please visit http://www.rjcf.com/ or ask RSM.Louisville for more information.
