Finding life "after the holidays"....

The Bike and Bourbon is happening! Nine enthusiastic riders from Israel (accompanied by Heidi!) to be joined with at least 20 American riders each day. Last night was the dedication of the mosaic created by  Lisa Klein who together with husband,  Robert are the Louisville Partnership chairs. Lisa who met "mosaics" in the Western Galilee has taken time off from her medical practice to explore new avenues, creating this special piece for Israel's 70th Anniversary.

Together with Michelle, making a round of conference calls with all the US Committee chairs. We are listening to the needs and will try to create better on going communication and support.

Thanks to all the Partnership volunteers for their part in making a wonderful party for the Lone Soldiers in the Western Galilee and also to the Police Station of Nahariya who brought cases of drinks, arranged the security permits and took the soldiers back to their kibbutzim in  police vans!!!!

With the Forum of Community(Federation) Representatives (FCR) met with the new JAFI Chair, "Boogey" Yitzhak Herzog. He came to listen about the federations' concerns, needs and wants from the Jewish Agency. Very down to earth, receptive  and brings a new spirit! He is making rounds to federations... let us know if you would like to request a visit.
