Monday, January 19 – Train the Tutor & visit to Independence Hall

 CAARI Orientation  Program – Last night we selected our community service assignments – some of us are tutoring English in elementary schools, some working in the Ichilov Rehab Center and others in the Botanical Gardens  at Tel Aviv University.  As part of the program, past participants present ‘tutoring ideas’ for those that will be going to schools.  Excellent presentation by Rosalie! Great ideas and suggestions by all.  

Train the Tutor with Rosalie, Barbara, Ellen and Rhoda
Major (ret) Tiran Attia 
Today was a free afternoon to get ourselves acclimated to Tel Aviv – those of us who came from Eilat had some laundry to do.  
Rosalie Reports;”….. last nite’s speaker, Major Tiran Attia, spoke on the different Islamic radical groups – where they are headquartered, and who leads the different groups, as well as their strengths and weaknesses and much more that I did not know before……much too much to write here, but I did take copious notes and will share them with anyone interested when I return
He was wonderful – surpassing,  my expectations…….and so I was very happy about that.  Things seem like they can’t get much better, but they usually do when I am in Israel.”
Regards, CAARI 2015
