    Dear Roxana,

    Thanks a lot for your message and I hope you enjoy a pleasant summer. As you know, the state of Israel is not yet a member of the EU. I wonder if you have new news for us how to enable us to participate in all UWI activities. Please change my e-maill address to *orasha@gmail.com *. Best regards,

    Ora Sharon
