CAARI Participant Comments for Blog

Over the past few weeks, CAARI has visited many sites from Eilat, Negev and places in the Tel Aviv area. They have meet Israelis, heard about Israel’s challenges from a number of speakers and volunteered their efforts in schools, hospitals and JNF forests. Their Israel Experience with CAARI has been very special to them.
Here are a few of their comments:

Joel and Cynthia Weintraub (New York)
“This trip has been maganificent. We continually learn so much from Neil and Susan. The lectures have been extremely well done. With HaShem’s help we will be here next year! “

Bev Stern (Toronto)

Every day is a day of discovery with CAARI. The tours take us to extraordinary museums like the Rabin and Palmach Museums, visits to the West Bank settlements, such as Alfa Menashe and charming towns, such as Zichron Yaacov to the fabulous Rothschild Gardens. All this is off the beaten track of most other missions to Israel. Our tour leaders, Susan and Neil – not enough can be said about the two of them. Great group of volunteers, interesting, congenial people. School experience is both challenging and rewarding.

Thank you CAARI

Ayala Rosen (New York) For me the Palmach Museum and the Ayalon Museum were the highlights (so far). I thoroughly enjoyed both!
Elaine Harris (Toronto, Canada) – We climbed to the top of Tel Dor in the rain. Richard the Lion Hearted got there before us, but we were the braver! “(in picture: Honey Moore, Heather Sculthorpe and Elaine Harris)

Anita Jampole (New York and Florida) “After 7 trips to Israel I thought that I had seen it all, but I leared that I hadn’t. This was an amazing day to the Negev where the Israelis with all their ‘smarts’ figured out ways to make the desert bloom. I often wonder what a fantastic ‘land of milk and honey’ this could really become if so much money didn’t have go to keep the country safe. Just amazing!”

Gloria Schalop (New York)

“Another fascinating day! Learning about the mysteries of making agricultural products better for farmers and consumers was a highlight. The Besor Reservior is truly a wonder!” …..CAARI is an unbelievable and exciting trip. Every day is a new , interesting, gratifying experience. Busy, morning, noon and night. ”
