הי. בסך הכל היה די נחמד. לא מהפכה גדולה, אבל בכל זאת הצלחנו להעלות את הנושא לדיון בפורום מאד מכובד. כמובן נשמעו הקריאות הרגילות על פיצוץ האוכלוסיה וצ'עמום, אבל בסך הכל הייתה אווירה מאד פוזיטיבית.

המפגש הבא יתקיים בע"ה ב-9 למאי, יום שישי אחרי יום העצמאות. מקווה לראותכם בקרוב

איליה
The Hebrew announcement will be followed by an English one :p
