In August 2019 the youth group of St. James Vicariate for Hebrew Speaking Catholics in Israel, Desert Flower, and youth from KISI - God's singing kids Austria, Germany and the Netherlands came together in an Erasmus-Plus youth exchange. We got the chance to get to know each other, each other's cultures and traditions; and we reflected on the book of Ruth. Through musical workshops the youth unfolded the story and started a process of asking questions on belonging, identity - home and foreign places.
August of 2020 was supposed to be the visit of KISI in Israel, but the COVID-19 pandemic has stopped us for now! Before we will hopefully meet in summer of 2021, we now came together virtually, showing that we are still united; that shared ideas and thoughts don't know place or time. Thank you to all who participated! Thank you for all your prayers! Thank you for all the financial support we received so far! We are still looking for additional funds for the second part of our youth exchange in summer of 2021.
