Over the last few days there has been a significant escalation of hostilities in Israel, particularly, although not only, in the south of the country. We hope that the violence will soon pass and that life in Israel will soon return to normalcy. Our summer programs begin for the most part at the end of May, and we are all hard at work at finalizing arrangements for these programs. At the same time we are carefully monitoring the security situation. We are in constant contact with all of our program organizers and our partners at Masa and the Jewish Agency in order to implement, if needed, any required program adjustments. All of our participants, as a matter of practice, receive safety and security orientations at the start of the program, with particular attention to elements such as location of safe rooms and shelters, how to respond during warning sirens and how to strengthen general awareness of ones surroundings and related developments. We are committed to the health and safety of our participants, both in terms of COVID-19 and security issues, and will continue to update our participants, partners and extended networks as the situation develops.
