This visit conveys an important message to Israel's youth and parents about the value of the WIZO boarding school educational framework.

The Olive Tree women have proven to all of us that in Israel, we can have a society where every human being receives the same level of appreciation, love, compassion, where each one can fulfil herself.

I am deeply proud to announce that the educational staff of four of our WIZO schools a were awarded grants from the Ministry of Education for the high achievements of their pupils.

It was deeply moving to see the eyes of the parents sparkling with pride when they saw their children transition into adolescence in one of the most special Jewish traditional ceremonies.

I am proud to share with you a report from the Exhibition “Women and their Olive Trees” that was successfully displayed at the European Parliament in Strasbourg from 4th-7th of July 2016

A letter I received  from Alegre Smeke, the new President of WIZO México, relating all the events organized by the Federation in the last months

I could sense the excitement of our youngsters, many of whom made an Aliya from the former Soviet countries, who were so deeply moved to see their parents who travelled from their home countries to Israel to be able to share this special moment with them. I also saw the pride in the eyes of the people who, over the past few years, have become their families, here in Nahalal.

Each time I meet a devoted Chavera, a spirited volunteer, and a happy WIZO youngster with a smile on his face, l know we have never lost sight of our mission to nurture and develop our Empire of Good.

The theme of the ceremony was "Reality is bigger than the imagination", and indeed, the reality – the achievement of our youngsters has surpassed all our hopes and dreams.

The extensive damage caused by the rocket did not stop us from continuing with the plans and perform the ceremony in one of the classrooms that was not affected by the impact.
