Sheryl Olitzky, Founder and Executive Director of Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, wrote an article for Huffington Post about their trip to the Balkans with MEJDI Tours this past January! In the article, Sheryl says,
We met many people during our trip to the Balkans. One thing was clear: our character–the “stuff” out of which we are made–is truly tested not when things are calm and the world seems peaceful. It is tested when there is no time to think. And we are not called to speak. Rather we are called to act. This trip will help all of us navigate our future. It helped us to see with our minds and our hearts. Only then will we be able to learn from the past and help shape a bright future.
