Episode 12: The End! (or is it?!)I have been back in Dayton for a few days now and I have had some time to reflect and savor my first trip to Israel.  I can tell you it was nothing that I expected and everything exceeded my expectations.  The people of Israel were so warm and welcoming and I was struck by the unrelenting gratitude of all of the people who benefit from the support of Partnership2Gether.I also got to meet some incredibly dedicated professionals and volunteers from our partnership central area consortium and I look forward to our next steering committee meeting in Youngstown in June where our strategic planning work will continue.But of all the feelings I have had the one that keeps floating to the top is appreciation. I am so thankful that I had this incredible opportunity to learn first-hand what makes Israel so special and bring that emotion and knowledge back to share with my co-workers, our community and my family and friends.  It has been an invigorating and revitalizing experience and I will be floating on this high for quite some time. One thing is certain – I can’t wait to return to Israel!]]>
