“To Our Amazing Routes Team, Now that everything is settled we wanted to thank you profusely for the months of working together, culminating in the amazing week we spent with our 105 participants in Israel in March. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. Besides the ultimate professionalism, organization and expertise, it is very apparent that you all really care, and put your heart and soul into the trek being as successful as possible. For us, this is an added touch that makes all the difference. The Trek has been our most significant experience since arriving at Kennedy School. It was extraordinary to witness the process our participants, predominantly non-Jewish and first-timers to Israel, went through. The trip included a large number of students who felt a baseline antagonism towards Israel and this led to difficult but rich and important conversations and experiences. They were introduced to undeniable complexity, hugely different than their previous perceptions, as well as to the extraordinary and inspiring parts of the Israeli story. We couldn’t have done it without you ! With Gratitude,”
