Ron Bowman another fine example how the inner Jewish spark turns into a flame in the heart of a Jew to return to its native habitat. Ron didn’t make Aliyah 12 years ago for religious reasons as he tends to identify with the secular crowd in Israel. But the most important thing to point out is that has no bearing on his soul connection to the Jewish people and the Land of Israel. The qualifications for making Aliyah have nothing to do with religion. As we are not a religion at our core, we are a people and a nation. Since our dispersion around two thousand years ago scattered our citizens around the world, now with the reestablishment of Israel, we are coming Home!
“When I made my first visit to Israel, the moment my feet touch the ground, I had a feeling inside that this is where I belong!” Bowman fondly reminisced.
Ron is not alone with that feeling (We call it “Aliyah Fever!)
Ron is also the president of Dale Carnegie Israel. Which covers Eastern Israel and Gaza.
Dale Carnegie (November 24, 1888 – November 1, 1955) was an American writer and lecturer and the developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking, and interpersonal skills. Born into poverty on a farm in Missouri, he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936), a massive bestseller that remains popular today. He also wrote How to Stop Worrying and Start Living (1948), Lincoln the Unknown (1932), and several other books. (Taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dale_Carnegie)
Bowman feels that the language of business and business relations can cut though the seemingly impossible barriers between Jews and Arabs and Dale Carnegie Courses will help tear down those walls.
