My relationship to Ronen Foundation
My relationship with the Ronen Foundation, and in fact with Yaffa Israeli, who is the heart of
this wonderful foundation, began this summer.
Yaffa explained to me several times in our meetings that the Ronen Foundation is not just a
foundation, it is a family, and now we are part of it.
From the very first moment I entered the foundation, I felt the amazing support of Yaffa, who
makes sure to take an interest in and support the professional and personal progress of me
and of all the foundation's scholarships.
It's such a great privilege to be part of a family of artists who are so special and talented,and
support each other professionally and personally.
