June 26, 2016


At the end of May, several leaders of WIZO Florida brought WIZO members, donors and friends to Israel. The goal of the mission, in the words of WIZO USA Co-President Jana Falic, was not only to expose the group to WIZO's work and impact but also to, "Make our friends fall in love with Israel again. If one loves Israel, one can't help but love Israel." The group, also led by WIZO USA Co-Founding President Mercedes Ivcher, Vice President Judit Groisman and Chairperson of WIZO Florida Ruth Benoliel, visited WIZO USA projects including the Ivcher Daycare Centre in Tel Aviv, Falic Daycare Centre in Maale Adumim, Nachlat Yehuda Youth Village, which the federation is newly sponsoring. The visitors also enjoyed a delicious meal at Jerusalem's Waldof Astoria hotel, partially prepared by culinary students from WIZO Biet HaKerem, as well as an final dinner at a rooftop Tel Aviv restaurant which was attended by WIZO Executive members.
