As my week in Dnepropetrovsk was ending, I was struck by two things in particular. One was the incredible warmth and graciousness of the people I had met and the second was their openness to new ideas. I expected to meet resistance as an “outsider” and foreigner coming in and making suggestions. But the people of Dnep don’t see the Boston visitors as strangers, but rather as their brothers and sisters in revitalizing the Jewish community and in making the city a better place for all its residents.
