Independen ce Revived at Camp Stone

Young Israel-Bnei Aki-
va's Camp Stone in Sugar
Grove, Pa., this summer re-
lived the historic moments
of 1947-48 leading up to the
declaration of independence
of the state of Israel.
The campers simulated
events, including the siege
of Jerusalem during the
1948 Arab invasion and the
courageous defense of
Kibutzim Degania and
Tirat Tzvi by the youngsters
of those settlements.
Camp Stone opened with
a re-enactment of the
United _Nations session
which formulated the parti-
tion plan for Palestine. The
children became UN "am-
bassadors" for various coun-
tries, with individualized
folders bearing their na-
tion's name, flag and voting
To simulate the siege of
Jerusalem, campers
were informed one morn-
ing that the convoy of
supplies headed for
Jerusalem was
roadblocked by Arabs.
As a result, campers re-
cieved food rations for
the day and hiked in the
woods, searching for

edible wild plants to sup-
plement their meals.
They found and cooked
greens, reminiscent of
the "Chubeza," the
Jerusalem spinach actu-
ally eaten by the Jews of
that city during the '48
Throughout the camp,
each age group designated
itself as an Israeli brigade
active in 1948. The campers
performed skits explaining
the heroic part of their par-
ticular brigade in the strug-
gle for independence of Is-
rael. Each bunk built proj-
ects which included a water
tower, a miniature kibutz
and a life-size display of
water conservation in a
1948 Jerusalem household.
The program culminated
as the campers proclaimed
the state of Israel by signing
the Declaration of Indepen-
dence with their names in
Hebrew. They were all dres-
sed in blue and white for the
occasion which featured a
parade led by Pennsylvania
National Guard military
vehicles escorting "David
Ben-Gurion" in a jeep at the
head of the column.
