Shifchatjah, 10 Years old

Dear Besorah, Chaninah, Ishah,

How are you all doing? I’m not doing so well. When Debeqah and I got here, we thought we were in a prison – shut windows and doors and a bunch of other strict laws was all we found.

I’m very bored many times because I don’t have anything to do. The school we are going to is not really so great either (it is boring). But we are making the most of our time.

Your friend,


P.S. Say hello to Noa for me.
