About the AACI blog

There is so much going on at the AACI that it’s a challenge getting all the information to people on a regular basis. Our blog helps us with that. Also, through our blog, we will give you a different perspective of the AACI and the people involved with the organization.

Please email any feedback to aaci@aaci.org.il or comment here on the blog.

Thanks and enjoy!
