At the invitation of Belgian Prime Minister Yves Leterme, a group of 50 children from Sderot, Israel, played parliamentarians for a day during a visit to the Belgian Federal Parliament.

The children, who are spending a free summer at the Camp Gan Israel run by Chabad-Lubavitch of Antwerp, spoke from the lectern and tried out the seats in the bicameral legislature.
