Hello from Houston,
We can't thank you enough for the incredible planning and the amazing "guiding". You made our trip easy, enlightening, fun, and one we will never forget. We have a new appreciation and connection to Israel that will remain with us always. >We hope to keep in touch and know that we will send any friends traveling to Israel to you. After Manachem left us we often looked around and asked "where is our Menachem"? I think that may be a new phrase in our house!!!! We are downloading the pics and will send some as soon as they are ready.
Hope all is well,
Susan, Ken, Rachael, Michael, Estelle

Shalom Yaffa and Menachem-
I just wanted to say a quick thanks to you both for such a wonderful trip. Words can’t really describe how much we loved you and Israel. This morning when Ari woke up he was crying because he wanted to be back in Israel. I will send you some photos when we print them. Please say hello and thank you to Aaron as well.

Shalom Yaffa-
I know I told you in person, but THANK YOU again for planning such a wonderful trip for us. I know the size of our group was challenging but all things considered, it went very smoothly and everyone enjoyed it immensely. Zvi was such a terrific tour guide and we really enjoyed touring with him. Please say hello to him from us. Moshe was the best bus driver -- we loved him!! The trip really touched all of us, so much so that Eric and I decided separately that we are not going to have a big party in New York for Jesse's bar mitzvah and we are going to concentrate everything in Israel. I look forward to hearing from you and planning this event with you.
