Eight teams of senior civil servants, business people, leaders of the social sector and representatives from local and regional authorities sat down to draft Israel's national initiatives, a basis for the Law for the Future of Israel. Efforts were made to employ every possible measure to ensure the coming government adopts it, both in the coalition and the opposition.
Over 100 people sat for five hours as professional partners, analyzing what might effectively alter the state of personal security, housing, employment, education, transportation, health, tourism and leisure, the environment and agriculture.
Above all, an incredible sense of togetherness was felt; hope and faith that as long as the candle still burning, things could be repaired.
Sam Delug and Alan Howard arrived specially from the United States and Ron Gar-Ner joined us from Germany.
