Our Guide was outstanding. All participants just loved the depth of his knowledge about the history of not only Israel and Hadassah, but of the whole region and the current political climate. Read More

Each day he tied together the sights we were seeing with the history. His knowledge of Hadassah and our contribution to building the State is amazing. I thought I knew a lot, but I learned many new things from him.
