“Thanks for a really great summer. It was a pleasure to work with you and to get an insider’s view of a really interesting and important organization, and valuable work experience. I’m very appreciative of how much positive feedback you gave, and how accessible you were. I also loved the opportunity to get out and see things in Israel I wouldn’t otherwise have gotten the chance to see, and thank you for finding ways for me to see ACRI in motion.”
