Noteworthy
 
Our WHO IS WISE? poster travelled to the ancient city of Zippori
via an interfaith group which included early childhood educators and science professionals led by Rachel Raz of Hebrew College of Boston, Massachusetts. "At Zippori, while exploring ancient text that is so relevant for us today we found common ground for conversation as educators, scientists, and simply human beings exploring Israel."
