IN OUR GUESTS' OWN WORDS

 

We saw that TAU isn't just a school, but an integral part of the country. The people we met are producing the apps that will be on our next smartphones.

—Murray Zucker, regional medical director, UnitedHealthcare

I thought I knew Israel. But on this trip, I saw a new Israel. People don't just think about the conflict any more. They're outward looking, and there's room for dreams and imagination.

—Yacov Levy, director of Signature Bank, NY subsidiary of Bank Hapoalim

I used to tell people that Israel is the Holy Land. Now I'm going to go back and tell them about the innovation nation. And TAU is a really big part of that.

—Dr. Bruce Dezube, medical oncologist, Boston, MA

Seeing all the amazing energy and creativity here renewed my faith that Israel has a great future.

—Carole Levy, schoolteacher, Massachusetts
