Meet one more Jewish Israeli participant:
Tomer Golan
Hi my name is Tomer Golan, I am fifteen years old and I live in kibbutz Ramat Yohanan.

In my kibbutz I work in the fields and enjoy it very much.

During my free time I play water-polo, play the guitar and hang out with my friends.

I have lived in the United States for four years and therefore know English very well. I have political issues and can never stop talking about it, but most of all I like to hear other people's thoughts about what is going on in the world and what they intend on doing in the subject.

I am very happy to have been chosen to go to the peace camp, because I would very much like to hear people's opinions on political problems, especially if they are looking at things from a different point of view than me.

I am willing to help out in any sort of issue that comes up no matter how painful or aggravating the subject may be.

So that's me and thank you for reading.

A meeting in Israel


In May Ronny and I visited Israel and spent a day in Yagour and in Nazareth, where we visited both, the Zvulun High School of Kibbutz Yagour and the Galil High school of Nazareth. In both school we were received with a lot of warmth and greeted by the headmasters, a few teachers and participants of previous, as well as of the next, peacecamps. It was exciting for us to see some of the participants of previous peacecamps and to meet the two new delegations.
We came back to Austria with very good feelings and with the profound hope, that Israel, this beautiful country with its most wonderful people will eventually find the peace, quiet and prosperity that it deserves.
Evelyn, May 2009

Meet the Hungarian peacecamp-delegation
1. Eszter Balogh (F)
My name’s Eszter Balogh and I live in Budapest, in the 17th district. Its name is Rákoskeresztúr. I live in a semi-detached house with my parents and with my two bigger sisters. This house is about 40 minutes from my school. I go to the Szent László High School, to the class F. F is a very interesting class, because in Hungary you can study just here mass media. We make movies, films, radio programmes, and articles- it’s our homework. Sometimes, it’s very tiring, because we do these things after school, in the afternoons and evenings, and obviosly we have to study other subjects. But I like it, bacause I can meet and talk with new people. We make the news of two TV cannels: of the popular ATV, and of the less pupular, Zugló TV (Zugló is a district in Budapest, so it’s a local channel)
In my free time I meet my friends, surf the internet, go to the cinema ( I really like films), and take photos about people and the nature.
I like all kind of music, I think, every singers have good and bad songs.

2. Norbert Potornai (M)

I’m Norbert Potornai, and I’m 17 years old. I’m studying communication in my school, and because of that I like films and the things with that subject. I like talking about films, but I have no a favorite one. And I like music (I listen to a lot kind of music, because, there are just a few tipe of music, that I really don’t like, for example the disco.) I can play the piano, I used to have lessons, but because of the high school, I have no time to taking lessons. And the most important thing about me is, I’ve been dancing for 7 years. I’m dancing irish step dance. I hope you know, what is this. I think these things are the most important about me.


3. Rajmund Bakonyi (M)

Hello!

My name is Rajmund Bakonyi, I am a a student of St. László Highschoool. My hobbies are photography, reading, fieldhockey, I like walking, and going out with friends. I think I am quite open to new things, I like to think about the happenings in the world, since I will turn 18 in less then a mounth. I think I can make new friends fast, I am rather talkative.

Well, that is all for now.

Cheers!


4. Franciska Strausz (F)

Hi =) My name is Franciska, my classmates love to annoy me with calling me Francis or Francsi (you can say any kind of nicknames but not these =D). I live in Budapest with my parents, and my lovely cat. I've got a 26-year old sister and a 29-year old brother, but they have already moved.

About me: I'm very talkative, but not at first. My friends say I always use my Colgate-smile, maybe because I love laughing. =) With my friends we often stay in the school after classes and have some fun together. I dance ballet for 13 years, and I like almost every kind of dance. In the summer I like getting up early with my friends, get some ice cream and see when the sun comes up =) I like foggy days because it's mysterious, and i also like being out when it's raining, it's fun =) I hate chocolate, and when it's so scorching in the summer that we can't go out. My favourite season is winter because my birthday is in January. I'm a drummer of a band (here i would mention the name and the members of the band, if it had a name and regular members...).

Well, I think that's enough for now. If you would like to chat with me here's my MSN messenger address: pancsi47@freemail.hu
See you in the summer! Bye

6.Dóra Kótai




Hi there, I'm Dora Kotai and my nickname is Dori. I've been to the peacecamp of 2007 as a participant and now I'm going to accompany the Hungarian delegation.
I'm 19 and am having my final exams in high school, which will be finished in the middle of June, so I will be totally free by the time of this year's camp :) I'm planning to go to University abroad, so it's a great opportunity to meet foreigners the summer before. I've always loved having friends from other countries, and i love speaking English and Italian. I have two brothers and we live with our parents in Budapest. When I have a little free-time (which I don't have now because of my exams...) I love listening to music, to many kinds, but especially to some kind of rock. My other passions are reading and watching films, but I'm very censorious with them. I am very talkative and communicative. People always tell me I have a great sense of humour and I have to believe them :D
I think this peacecamp project is an experience you will never forget and I hope you will feel the same as me. (And I'm quite sure you will :)) See you in July!

7.Bence Ábrahám

Hello,

My name is Bence Ábrahám, I'm sixteen, and I frequentate a bilingual school, where I study italian, and english, also. When I arrive home, I use the internet a lot, for reading articles, blogs, and things like that. I play the guitar, and try to play the piano also. I like singing, but I'm not so good at it...you'll see xD. I like watching movies, the european ones above all, for example my favourite movie's are the Strange life of Amilié and the Pulpfiction (even if it's american:). My favourite books are the Love Story by Erich Segal, and the Misery by Stephen King. I never wathc tv, but I watch some series on the computer, for example South Park, Family Guy, and How I met your mother. I play in two rockbands as a guitarist, and I'm dancing acrobatic rock and roll. If I can, I do a lot exercises, I run, play soccer, or go cycling. I'm sure that we will spend 10 days together in peace and friendship!

See you soon!

Bence Ábrahám

My favourite book is Harry Potter :)
I can play the guitar but not very well, I have been learning it for 3 years. I like being outside and I like meeting new people. I would like to know other cultures so I think it will be a great camp with you :) My favourite season is summer because we can go outside and go roller-skating or swimming :)
I can't make decisions easily and I often lose my things so I'm not an organised person and it always bothers me but others say it's funny: D They think it's because I was born on April's fool day :) I don't know... :D
That was me :) I hope we will meet soon in the summer. Iâ019m waiting for this very much :)

Meet Nurit Lass ....

..... who will show us that the world is not only problems,
but flowers

I am a psychotherapist who loved her work very much and felt completely fulfilled in it.
In later years I have enlarged my interest and learned about bodywork and about spirituality.
I decided to retire when I felt I was living too much in a bubble and wanted to get in touch more with "real life".
Like John Lennon I IMAGINE a world of love and peace
Like Leonard Cohen I "know there is a crack in everything but that is where the light comes in"
A peacecamp is one such ray of light

Bless you all
Nurit
