I am very sorry to have
to postpone the 3rd International Conference on Tutoring and Mentoring
due to the current situation in the area.
When I began planning
this conference I was very optimistic about the peace process and felt a
desire to contribute to it in my way. Nazareth was chosen to be our
hosting site, hoping to bring together Christians, Moslems and Jews from
all over the world to discuss social and educational issues designed to
help and enhance underprivileged populations everywhere.
As many of you already
know, I am utterly devoted to the Tutoring and Mentoring cause and am a
great believer in its potential. During the last year my colleagues and
myself spent countless hours in preparing the “perfect” conference
in which we have tried to implement what we have learnt from the
experiences of others.
Unfortunately, due to the
latest developments in our area, and our deep concern for your safety,
it seems that we have to postpone the Third Conference on Tutoring and
Mentoring and wait for calmer and better times. We still believe that
Israel is the right place for such a conference and we commit ourselves
to hold it in the (near) future.
I would like to thank you
for your willingness to take part in the conference and the patience you
have shown during recent days.
Hoping to see you soon.
With warm regards
