The Jewish Agency for Israel took thousands of children and teenagers for respite at different sites out of rocket range across the country. These respite activities have been organized in full coordination with the National Emergency Authority and the local authorities. During The Jewish Agency’s respite operation, children from the South enjoyed themselves in different sites in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv including the Azrieli Mall, Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, KifTzuba (children’s amusement park) and the Israel Museum.
