Past participants from delegations organized and co-led by Yael say:
“You have built an amazing program and mission. Your knowledge, passion and strength are so inspiring. I feel so blessed to have been a part of such an amazing journey.”
“I could not have arranged or even imagined the opportunities the Compassionate Listening Project offered to learn about Israel/Palestine issues first-hand. We met with individuals and groups who broadened my awareness and touched my heart, people I likely never would have met on my own.
- Sharon Kahn
“The experience was amazing – eye-opening, mind-bending, and soul-shaking. I would recommend it heartily to anyone who really wants to experience, not just visit, the Holy Land.”
- Robert Stall
"A really impactful part of this course for me was the compassionate listening workshop that we had at the beginning of the semester. Although it was a short afternoon session I still learned a lot of skills about how to listen and engage in a meaningful dialogue with someone, especially when you disagree on something. ..The tools I learned from that workshop have also been really helpful..." - Student, Brandeis University
