Two hundred students from all over the former Soviet Union have travelled by all available means to Crimea in Ukraine to take part in a variety of activities held by Hillel, the Foundation for Jewish Campus Life.

 

The goals of the 5-day summer seminar on the picturesque Black Sea coastline was to make the most of the Crimea’s late summer weather, enjoying educational workshops, a bit of song and dance, and of course, some traditional fun in the still warm sea.

 

The camp was supported by Ukrainian Businessman Igor Kolomoisky and the European Jewish Union, and was dedicated to the theme of social networking, encouraging people to become better acquainted not just with Hillel, but with each other too.
