A few words from Tomer about IFLAC:
“I conducted a wide search in order to find the best place for me to promote peace. I found IFLAC, a leading non profit organization, which promoted peace for more than a decade, and immediately contacted Dr. Ada Aharoni, founder and president of IFLAC. I feel that I have found a home where I will be able to fulfill my vision and bring it to the real world. I promise that I will do all that I can to spread the word of IFLAC to every house. I will act to promote coexistence between nations, religions, genders and all people of all walks of life. Furthermore, I will assist in organizing conferences, international congresses of IFLAC, with the aim of bringing peace one step closer to our own days.”
