Leadership Mission to Ashkelon 9-12.2.2011

Leadership Mission
Heart 2 Heart
Two important delegations visited us in the middle of February, the Leadership Mission and womens Heart to Heart Mission.
In such a short period of time we did so much together . Visits to programs that Baltimore funds through the Partnership and through the "Israel & Overseas committee". Meetings face to face and for the first time doing the anual allocation when over 30 members of the partnership sat around the same table - Ashkelonians and Baltimorians . And the highlight of the visits was to the new Volunteer Center that is soon to be finished .
