Allegations of racist summer camp policies in Rehovot retracted

After harsh accusations last week, members of the Ethiopian Israeli community in Rehovot retracted their allegations that a camp in the city had instituted racist policies and segregated Ethiopian Israeli children from the rest of the campers.

On Monday of last week, Ethiopian Israeli parents in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood of Rehovot accused the municipal summer camp provider for preschoolers, Havayot Rehovot (Experiences), of acquiescing to the demands of parents from the nearby wealthier neighborhood of "Green Rehovot," to keep the Ethiopian Israeli children in separate camps.

They further alleged that the parents from the wealthier neighborhood had asked to have their camp hosted by the community center in Kiryat Moshe so they could benefit from the cheaper prices in the neighborhood.
