Cultural Heritage Tours

Designed and promoted cultural heritage tours to Turkey for special interest groups in the U.S.  In a twelve-month period, more than 30 groups from the US visited Turkey.  In the two years following, repeat group trips were requested.  In addition, a gala evening in New York was planned to raise funds for the renovation of significant Jewish heritage tourism sites in Turkey.  In attendance were Henry Kissinger, Turgut Ozal (then president of Turkey) and David Levy (then Foreign Minister of Israel).  The evening succeeded in raising $500,000.
