During Federation CJA’s Montreal Mega Mission: Centennial Edition, participants had the opportunity to help make murals in our sister city of Beer Sheva. One of them – painted by several artists, including Montrealer Elaine Dubrovsky – has become an Instagram icon! For the past year, people from all walks of life – including IDF soldiers – have been taking photos in front of the beautiful “We love BR7” mural. Click here to see more photos!
