On February 16 and March 22 we received the members of SOS International: Bridging Jewish Communities in Budapest at the Teleki Tér Shtiebel.
SOS International is a not for profit organization that connects American Jewry with European Jewry through structured educational, social and humanitarian programs. SOS programs thereby strengthen European Jewish identity, improve the delivery of Jewish educational services within selected European Jewish communities, foster greater cultural and spiritual linkages between American Jewry and European Jewish communities.
We had very instructive two afternoons with them at the Teleki, where in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere we shared our history and vision of the Shtiebel and the Foundation for teachers, artists and other representatives of different organizations. Following that we also had time for contemplating in small groups when we asked for their opinions on our current and future projects and asked them about their experiences in building organization. It was a pleasure to see the attention and enthusiasm which they shared their useful suggestions. We hope we can count on their help in the future. And of course, we thank them for the beautiful new books we got.
