IVOW Noa Rozenberg

Noa Rozenberg at CBB

“Noa loved everything so much that she did not want to come back to Israel! She also told us that she felt so free and safe while being in Canada. There is no question that Noa arrived back in Israel and much more confident and grown-up person.” – Chani Rozenberg, mother of 2015 participant Noa Rozenberg

“We had butterflies in our stomach when we sent our son Itai to such a distant country; but our worries and fears were for nothing. Itai had an experience that can be defined as as experience of a life-time. IVOW made sure that Itai felt protected and not lacking in anything and the program both enriched him and educated him. IVOW sent us back a son who was happy, independent, and mature.” – Gali Daniely, mother of 2015 participant Itai Daniely

Amir Niagara Falls

“Both myself and my husband Alon are generally so protective of Amir here in Israel, even for a two day school trip. But we knew that Amir likes to be able to experience new things so we trusted IVOW that everything would be fine and it turned out to be a fantastic decision. He had a great time and made so many Israeli and Canadian friends.” – Galit Shrim, mother of 2015 participant Amir Shrim

“I feel that to understand and appreciate the importance of IVOW upon our lives a small explanation is needed: Working as the chief surgical resident at Soroka University Medical Center in Beer Sheva during the war with Gaza in 2014 meant that for most of the summer I was practically living at the hospital. This meant that my daughter Hila not only suffered from the horrors of this tragic war, but also away from her dad for almost two months. This surely took a toll upon her developing personality and thus we are so happy and grateful to IVOW who made the next summer for her a summer of joy and happiness. IVOW was a magical program that lifted her spirit, mending all of what she had suffered the previous summer.” – Dr. Zvi Perry, father of 2015 participant Hila Perry
