Feedback received from the workshop’s alumni:

was very helpful in many ways .
■ 'It was fun, I learned many things, and met new people. I learned about different ways of
seeing the term called "Public Diplomacy", and about different techniques in the art of
conveying a message. The man and women who took part in this workshop were indeed
brilliant, and now they will be able to use their various abilities to shape a better image of
Israel. Hopefully, along side with that, they will continue in their contribution to Israel's social
