Shoutouts from Ariel Siman Tov, JWRP Madrich
“The people of Israel were looking at you. They saw you walking around on Shabbat and sitting in Cafes in the city. They saw you walking through Tzfat and laughing in the Dead Sea. They saw Jewish women who say "No" to Terror and a large "YES" to supporting Israel. Seeing you made the Israelis feel safe. Yes, sounds funny right? Us feeling safe because of you? But yes, seeing and feeling your support makes any Soldier or any Israeli feel that he is being loved just because of the fact that he is here. Love has no boundaries- I am a true believer of that. It will get to you, It will get to you even if it takes coming from South Florida, Manhattan, or Boca, all the way to the Middle East, it will come, it will come to Israel.”
“Our discussions made me Wiser, I learned from you all. You all have gone through so much in your lives and there I was, feeling like a kid among women who've been through so much.”
