"Incredible Cal-Israel Innovation Expo kick-off event at my office in San Diego and 2 amazing days after that at the University of San Diego. Honored to help kick off and speak at the event and both humbled and excited by the incredible innovators and their innovations. Israeli and California innovators & entrepreneurs that continue to solve problems and help enrich our lives. From water to cyber. From incredible storage solutions to drones that help farmers grow their crops. From technology that can prevent drowning accidents in swimming pools to applications that will help you easily share memories with your family and loved ones. Exciting innovation was certainly in full force this week at the Expo!”

This event was a wonderful sharing of so much innovation and purpose. It was exciting to be a part of all of this,and I was happy to have been able to speak about and share something about us as a synagogue Israel committee and about American Jewry vis a vis Israel. Our congregation, Dvora and I truly appreciated the opportunity to be involved with the EXPO, Yoram and such extraordinary people who embodied such passion for Israel and for the future. We already can't wait to see what you do next year Yoram!


Mazel tov on your success and best wishes always,
