See you all
Servas Israel annual meeting was held on Saturday 31 March in Haifa - Castra
In the morning we had a few social activities - walking on the Haifa promenade, or in the down town. Some stayed in Castra and enjoyed the art galeries and the get-together. Then we had the traditional shared meal at noon, after which we held elections for the Board and Audit commitee
Servas Israel did it, and we conclude this unusual event very positively.
The challenge began with an invitation by Haim Murik, Israel Servas secretary in January 2011.
Over 50 Servas members arrived to the meeting, from the Center, Sharon, Tel Aviv and Haifa area - impressive responsiveness.
The meeting between friends, conversations all over the room, warmed the heart.
We met at Moshav Odem – 1180 m above the sea, tasted the wonderful Druze delicacies, heard Akab from Buqaata and Gadi from Odem about Druze and Israeli coexistence in Golan Heights, then took a guided tour to the Great Juba on the edge of an extinct volcano.
