An Open Letter to the Mishlochot: The Special Tikvah/Mishlochot Relationship
Thank you to so many of our mishlochot friends who came from all over Israel to visit with our Tikvah Ramah Israel Program participants during our recent Israel trip. Thank you for hosting us in your homes in Beit Shemesh and Modiin. Thanks for taking us swimming and making us a beautiful picnic lunch in Caesaria. Thanks for traveling from Rishon Letzion and other places to the Palmach Museum in Tel Aviv for a visit during our short lunch break. Thanks for hanging out with us at the Robinson's Arch, the Kotel, the Jewish Quarter and on the midrechov in Jerusalem.
Yes, it is wonderful seeing the important sites of Israel. But it is the people of Israel who make Israel truly come alive! You come to camp as shlichim and bring Israel to us; you return to Israel with a new understanding and appreciation of people with disabilies–and so many abilities. Please continue your work as shichim on behalf of atttidue change toward people with special needs. Keep up the great work! We are so appreciative to all of you.
