Renaissance Nazareth Hotel
Nazareth, Israel, October 23-26, 2000

Dear friends,

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
Amos Carmeli
