Vered Karasenty attended the Night to Honor Israel in 2012 in the Quad Cities.  As she was recently getting ready to move back to Israel, her last article in the Peoria Jewish Federation newsletter said the following:  “The thing that most surprised me this year was the Night to Honor Israel in the Quad Cities.  Growing up watching Israel on CNN made me think that the world doesn’t understand nor support us.  So you can probably imagine how shocking that night was for me.  I almost asked someone there ‘Why?’  But the Doors sing ‘Oh don’t ask why’.  So, I take home with me an unforgettable night and a bunch of love for Israel.”
