Today, we mark Yom Yerushalaym, Jerusalem Day, when we celebrate the 49th anniversary of the historic day our capital was reunited.


I am delighted to congratulate our Na'ale students on receiving their Te'udot Zehut and wish them luck on their new journey here in Israel. I am certain that each and every one of them will contribute to our society and help us create a better future for the State of Israel.

Thanks to our professionals, volunteers, and our Swiss Federation, these youngsters received all the support they needed not only to graduate but to start a new life with confidence and qualifications that will help them pursue their dreams whether in higher education or in any other way.


Congratulations and good lack to the newly elected talented President of WIZO Australia – Paulette Cherny and my utmost gratitude to Gilla Liberman, who has served as this federation's inspiring and dedicated President for the past 6 years.


One of Israel's biggest summer outlet sales, will support this year WIZO's projects for women and children at risk.


Yom Ha'atzmaut is a special day for all of us – it is the day we celebrate, with deep pride, the return of the Jewish people to its homeland.


WIZO joins the rest of Israel and the entire Jewish people in mourning 23,447 soldiers, and victims of terrorism, who have fallen in the defense of our Homeland.


On this difficult day, we remember the horrors of the Holocaust, we remember the sacred work WIZO did to save lives and support Aliya, and we remember why WIZO's work continues to be vital in protecting the Jewish people in Israel and around the world.

On Wednesday, I was invited, together with all the other leaders of organizations who operate DCC, to the Knesset, where I spoke before the Labor, Welfare and Health Committee to voice our concerns and demands to secure the future of our children and Day Care Centers.

A huge success story of our Olive Tree Exhibition, which continues to do wonders in Europe - this unique WIZO project, which features paintings from Jewish and Arab women from the area of Afula, will be on display at the European Parliament in Strasbourg from 4th July to 8th of July, 2016.
