My relationship to Ronen Foundation
My relationship with the Ronen Foundation, and in fact with Yaffa Israeli, who is the beating heart of this wonderful foundation, began in the tenth grade. Miri Zamir Capsuto, a close friend of Yaffa and the former director of the classical music department at Thelma Yellin High School, met between a number of students in the program, including me, and Yaffa.
Yaffa explained to us that the Ronen Foundation is not just a foundation, it is a family, and now we are part of it.
Since then, Yaffa was updated on all my professional and personal deeds; she interested, asked and helped wherever possible. It's a great privilege to be part of a family of people, musicians and artists so special and talented, the foundation's initiatives and projects connect all of these for noble causes, and it's great fun to take part in it
