Two 12-month scholarships have been offered and accepted. Jordan is a graduate of Longwood Academy in the USA and he, together with Sara, who has just graduated from the Royal Botanical Gardens, Edinburgh will be our 2013-14 scholars. Sara has been awarded the Zelda Belcher Memorial Scholarship and we know she will be a credit to the memory of a much admired late Friend.
The cornerstone of the exciting new Children's Discovery Trail was laid in a special ceremony on 1 July 2013. Special guests included the Mayor of Jerusalem, Mr Nir Barket, the World Chairman of KKL-JNF Mr Efi Stenzler and the Chair of the Keren-Hayesod-UIA World Board of Trustees, Mrs Yohanna Arbib-Perugia.
The ceremony was of particular importance to Mrs Jill Caplan, widow of Mendel Caplan who chaired the JBG Board for so many years; her daughter Sharon and son-in-law Alan Berkeley, now Chairman of the Board, who have all worked so hard to make Mendel's dream a reality. We know the Children's Trail is going to be a huge success and look forward to its completion.
