Yesterday, we held a very festive event to mark WIZO's 97th anniversary.
It was a wonderful occasion that brought together members of the World WIZO Executive, members of the WIZO Israel Executive, Chairpersons and Chaverot from WIZO's branches across Israel, volunteers, staff and guests from our institutions.
We also had a surprise visit from the dear Gratziella Bourla, President of WIZO Greece who gave a short birthday speech to mark this occasion.
We heard from our WIZO instructors, teachers, and social workers and other members of WIZO staff who work tirelessly to support Israelis every day and ensure a bright tomorrow for Israeli society – from birth to golden age.
It was a marvelous celebration of our different programs, projects and the people who work hard every day to make them happen.
My heart beamed with pride to see our WIZO family come together and celebrate 97 years of devoted work for Israeli society.
I wish us many more years of invaluable contribution to our people in Israel and around the world.
