I traveled to Israel with RHR a couple of times, to volunteer in their planting of trees on both sides of the green line as well as to witness for myself what is happening there.I was educated by great leaders as well as parents who have lost children, mothers who stand up for justice, and many others who desire peace. RHR makes me feel proud to be Jewish because I know our highest principles are being upheld, and feel inspired to act for peace and justice.

being re-inspired that Judaism's highest, and deepest principles are being upheld by rabbis who really care how we act, both in Israel and in North America.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make it more visible. make it more organized.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the rabbis' commitment to peace and justice at all personal costs.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
do publicity, hire legal aids to help on cases that dont have enough money. educate the public about what is going on, both in Israel/Palestine, as well as in the world (RHR North America is workinghard to publicize global slavery and trafficking
Ways to make it better...
