    This month the Branch Forum reinvented itself! Instead of inviting all ESRA members for an update of  Branches and Projects, it was decided to invite just the Branch heads to sit down for a session of sharing experiences. To quote one of the participants "This is exactly what we needed - to get practical information from ESRA Head Office, to hear about how problems are solved in other branches,  to share information and questions and to just feel that we're part of the greater ESRA family and have the support of this family behind us".

    "An Israeli Love Story" with Adi Bielski played to a packed house in Raanana on the 13th June. Adi, alone on the stage, held the audience spellbound for 70 minutes while she acted out the poignant story of the love affair between Margalit, the young and vibrant kibbutznik and Ami an idealistic pioneer and solder in the Palmach. It begins in the summer of 1942 through a chance meeting at a bus stop. Despite the many dangers and hardships of those times, their relationship develops into a promise of marriage.
