As the publisher of “Israel-Between The Lines”, the Israeli-Swiss Association, is especially pleased that our editor, Zo Flamenbaum, has been awarded the Bonei Zion Prize by the organization Nefesh B’Nefesh in the category “Young Leadership”. We congratulate Zo on this important achievement.
We are honoured that Zo is part of our team. For four years she has been editing brilliantly the English version of our weekly online magazine.
Zo received the award for her organization “School of Shine“, which offers workshops and courses for sustainable, conscious, and truly supportive further education. Whether writer’s workshops, creative courses, or a weekly love letter to its members – the school, which sees itself as a kind of collective, wants above all to support women in their holistic development and offer them a safe, inspiring place to do so.
“This year’s laureates are shining examples of how much influence someone can have on an entire field of study and work, and they give us great hope for the State of Israel. By celebrating these laureates, we remind you that the Zionist Dream continues to grow and flourish,” said Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, co-founder and executive director of Nefesh B’Nefesh, an organization that promotes and supports Jewish immigration to Israel.
