What Past Participants Have Said:

 

“Kaleidoscope was a life altering trip for me. Having been so many times to Israel, this trip opened up an entirely different exposure and one that I am most grateful for. It gave me a real insight into the complexities of Israel today from an intellectual, political, social, educational and cultural perspective. Nothing changed my love for Israel but it opened up my eyes to things I possibly didn’t want to acknowledge before. An incredibly thought provoking trip, one that I cannot stop thinking about and talking about.”   -Robyn Buchman, Chair, Israel Engagement Committee, UJA Federation of Toronto

 

 

“Kaleidoscope was a terrific program. It was intense and enlightening but also very enjoyable. The mix of events was excellent and the flow and structure were very good.” -Trevor Norwitz,  Partner, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, New York

 

 

The program really allowed individuals to take what they wanted from the trip. For me, it was about learning who is not included in our narrative about Israel, whether historically or presently. I also appreciated that the group was diverse in age and where participants were from. It allowed for a lot of different viewpoints. The trip to Ramallah was incredible. It put the conflict into perspective and the difficulty of finding a solution a reality.” -Madeleine Sarick, Lawyer, VP Samuel Sarick Limited Developments, President at an Egalitarian-Conservative Synagogue in Toronto

 

 

It has been my honor to be with you and to experience Israel with you and all it means. I am profoundly moved by the experience. I feel three thousand years of history tapping me on the shoulder, and it has shaken me to the core. I come away with a very positive impression of Israel and the Israeli experience… The challenges are there – the Palestinian question, discrimination, freedom of expression – but these are the challenges of a healthy society engaged in self-examination. I have one homeland and right about now I could sure use a second. You are very fortunate to have Israel as a place you can come to as your second home. “ -John Schmidt, Director, Kew Media Group, New York

 

 

An extremely educational, nuanced and insightful window into Israeli society, politics and security. Has had a significant influence in developing our understanding of Israel and what it means to us, and in so doing strengthening our relationship with it.”  -Judy Hoffman, Director of Corporate Marketing, Procter & Gamble

 

 

Kaleidoscope was spectacular. It was seamless and our Israeli team was so well organized and attentive. The program was very moving and covered many perspectives from outstanding guests.” -Robert Milne, President, Everest Mortgage & Capital Corp, Toronto

 

 

Everything about the Kaleidoscope program was superb – the team of staff, guides, and esteemed presenters provided admirable variety and a breadth of opportunities for an interesting cohort of fellow travelers to explore.  We had amazing access to articulate leaders who could address relevant issues facing Israel today based on experience and knowledge. Diverse viewpoints were provided and dialogue was respectful. Staff and guides presented historical frameworks that were very useful in understanding current issues.” -Linda Rakoff, retired social worker, Boston

 

 

This was an outstanding program. It presented a truly unique view of Israel and the issues it faces today. I was most impressed with the caliber of speakers in the program. They were simply amazing. I was particularly pleased that the organizers provided a good balance of views and perspectives; I thought the tour guides and other staff were excellent. They were very professional yet friendly.” -Byron Rakoff , Federal Aviation Administration Manager (retired), Boston
