L’hitraot to CAARI 2008 in song!

The CAARI Song
CAARI has some very talented people who have written songs describing our experience. One of them is Noami Halpern, a long time CAARI participant, wrote these verses toasting CAARI’s 25th anniversary!

It is sung to the tune of Od’ Lo Ahavti Dai by Noami Shemer

So let us stand together
Let’s raise our glasses high!
We have something to celebrate
The number “twenty five”
For CAARI has a birthday
We’ve lived to see the day
So say “Shehahianu”
We’re 25 to-day!

The time for us to say “good-bye”
is drawing very near.
We’ve been through many ups and downs
To get from there to here.
We’ve climbed some hills and valleys
We’ve seen some wondrous sights
We’ve had some sunny mornings
We’ve had some rainy nights.

We’ll say “good-bye”, give a hug
And wish each other cheer
Stay strong and well and happy
So you’ll be back next year,
Tell all you friends about your
Adventures in this, land
About the wondrous things you’ve done
So they will understand.

Ay Ay Ay C-A-A-R-I
Susan is our leader
On whom we can rely.

Ay Ay Ay C-A-A-R-I
Let’s all join hands in friendship,
Hold them up high.

To all the CAARI participants,
Thank you for your dedication and commitment to Israel. Your participation in CAARI is heart warming and greatly appreciated by all those who have been touched by you. Hope to see you next year – with CAARI in Israel!
Warmest Regards,
Susan and Neil
