    Ana Restrepo, Columnist, El Colombiano and El Espectador

    “Everywhere you go, you have more questions than answers and you always want to know more. That’s why it’s so important to be here - you can’t find all the answers here but you get the feeling that you want to keep reading and studying about Jewish history.”

    Gustavo Gomez, Radio Director, La Luciernaga, Caracol Radio (In Spanish)

    “Hay una cosa que me parece clave sin ánimo a molestar otras creencias, naciones o pueblos.
    Esta es una democracia funcional única en la región, es lo más parecido a lo que una persona como yo, Colombiano-amante de la democracia querría para su país. Y el concepto de que el trabajo del pueblo judío durante tantos años el tesón la entrega y la dedicación son los que hoy en día garantiza que hoy exista esa democracia. Por supuesto una democracia necesita cada vez acoplarse más con la región.”

    “There is something that is key for me, with no offense to other religions, nations, or peoples; Israel is a functional democracy, and unique in this region. Israel’s democracy is the closest thing to what someone like me - a Colombian lover of democracy, would want for his country. The idea that the hard work of the Jewish people for so many years, their perseverance, commitment, and devotion are in essence what guaranties that today this democracy exists. Of course, a democracy needs to adapt to its region.”

    Hans Monath, Political Correspondent, Der Tagesspiegel (Germany)

    “The program allowed me an inside view of the Israeli and Palestinian society and politics. I have a better and very different understanding of what’s happening in this region now.”

    Daniel Friedrich Sturm, Editor, WeltN24 (Germany)

    “This experience, was and is for me, very interesting and helpful for our work in Germany. We had a lot of different lectures and it was very interesting to deepen information about Israel.”

    Patrick Gensing, Editor, (Germany)

    “This was really an exciting trip. I learned a lot about the country and gave me a basic understanding of the conflict. But the program is not reducing Israel to only the conflict with the Palestinians, but it also shows all different kinds of society and of multi-cultural alliance in Israel.”
