It was wonderful to welcome Sherri Wise as our guest speaker at the Women’s Philanthropy Survival and Forgiveness event on November 12. Twenty-two years ago, a simple choice to have lunch at a restaurant in Jerusalem changed Sherri’s life when she became the victim of a triple suicide bombing in Jerusalem. Sherri spoke to us about the power of choosing forgiveness over anger, blame or hatred. Instead, Wise is defined by gratitude -- so many people helped in her recovery, and she now has the opportunity to give back. Over 165 people were inspired by her sensible and wistful words. Thank you Sherri!
