Levana, our Servas Friend, who leads the group of artists and hobbyists in Servas Israel, wrote:

In art, the way and process is as important as the result.
The main and common resource for SERVAS is the recognition of all human beings regardless of religion, race or sex.
So, it was important for all of us to show the way our country was created - to show the colorfulness, beauty and wealth that exist in Israel, that despite all the difference and contrast, we always connect a...s people to each other - to people on our beach, to our future, which is derived from the technology and the original and innovative ideas of Israelis.

For your information - this work was inspired by Servas Israel coming event in December 17-26, 2017, and will be presented in the event.

Dear friends,
A group of 20 friends of Servas Israel traveled to Poland 30 June – 7 July 2017, following the kind invitation of Maria and Adam Zemojcin (the third year).
This time Maria and Adam planned a tour to see, not only Krakow, but also the mountains and spas nearby.
Everyone returned with a sense of exhilaration. It was a wonderful trip in every way: wonderful hosts Adam and Maria and their friends Eva and Maciek who went out of their way to please the guests - won...derful friendly and flowing group of Servas Poland members.
Israelis learned to know the hosts and many aspects of beautiful Poland that they were not aware of.
Thank you Dear Maria, Adam and Servas Poland.

להלן סכום הטיול לפולין שנערך מטעם סרווס באהדה/// כל הרשמים החוויות כתובים בטור ועמודה.
המארחים מריה ואדם,צמד חמד, המתינו לנו בשדה התעופה חן וחמדה/// הם מהווים סמל ודוגמא, שיר מזמור,לזוג הנפלא ,הם תפארת סרווס- זו עובדה/// אשר גילו אהבה ומסירות למופת, והשקיעו מאמץ ועבודה/// הסיעו אותנו לביתם, ערכו שולחנות כיד המלך בצורה נכבדה/// נפגש בשמחות בכל עת, סוף פסוק נקודה
הקבוצה חייכנית סיממפטית,וקולם נשמע בתהודה/// בסיורים כל הזוגות צמודים-ידו בתוך ידה/// כל אחד צועד בהתאמה,עם פספורט מצלמה ותעודה/// נתמנה לנו "לידר" בשם ראובן, שהיה מקשר מדריך מבטן ולידה.הקבוצה היתה מגובשת כמשפחה,ממש "גאוות יחידה"/// החברים דייקנים,רצים לאוטובוס אל המטרה היעודה.
המסלול- תוכנן ובוצע בדרכי הערכה ולמידה /// ערכנו סייור מקיף בקרקוב,רובע היהודי, בתי כנסת, קתדרלות ומצודה/// בקרנו בעיירת נופש זקופנה בהר הרי הטטרה ,עלינו ברכבל ללא חרדה/// מזג אוויר סגרירי,ערפל וגשם,כולם עם מטריה תפסו מחסה ועמדה/// אטרקציה נוספת ,רכיבה על מרכבות סוסים וחלקם עשו צעידה/// זכינו לשייט ברפטינג במים שקטים,וכולם על הרפסודה/// החלפנו מקומות לינה,מזוודות "הרם הורד" "פתח וסגור" ללא מעידה/// היינו בערבי שירה ופולקלור במסעדה, קניות ללא אבדה
לסיום, הללוליה לקלודיה על הארגון , כל הכבוד למארחים מריה ואדם על היוזמה, ולקבוצה נחת ותודה/// נפגש בשמחות בכל עת, סוף פסוק נקודה

Dear friends! In my name and my husband, I would like to thank you sincerely for accepting us in Israel, for the organization of our entire stay and the warmth we received from you. We felt great, we felt that we are in the company of close friends. It's hard for me to describe our joy. I thank you with all my heart. Thanks to you, we saw in Israel a lot of places where ...one would never know as ordinary tourists. We are very, very grateful. We are blessed with not only real gifts, but Your care, attention friendship. You know well, and it once again repeat that you always have our house open for you.
