Testimonials 2012 - Temple Emanuel of Newton's Jewish Heritage trip to Argentina

It was my absolute pleasure to host a 30 people group from Temple Emanuel of Newton that visited Argentina in March 2012. The Jewish Heritage trip was led by Temple Emanuel’s Argentinean Cantor Elias Rosemberg.

Below you can read the testimonials.

 “Hi, Valeria!
I never really told you what a pleasure it was all these months working with you and planning our wonderful trip.  Your patience and help with the thousands of details and requests  made the whole experience simply wonderful.  When I think back to last September when Elias asked me to do organize this, I never imagined how wonderful an adventure we would have.  Jeff and I fell in love with BA and hope to return with our children.  It's an amazing, vibrant city and having you lead us truly showed us the best of Buenos Aires!

Our travelers are still flying from the experience.  Every time I speak with one of them, they are still "on cloud nine" about the trip.  I know I am delighted - as are Elias and Debbie.  They all want to know where we're going to take them next!

I hope you're having a wonderful Pesach.  Please give Rafi a big hug and kiss for me!

Thanks again for everything!

Best - Molly Goodman” 


“Hi Valeria,
Hard to believe we have been home for a week already!  I just want to tell you how much Gary and I enjoyed traveling in Buenos Aires with you.  We keep talking about what a wonderful sense of the city we came home with, from the Jewish perspective, the historical perspective as well as the political perspective.  Everyone that was on the trip has been talking about what an extraordinary time we all had!  When Gary and I go to minyan in the morning we have a mini reunion. (Someone is always wearing something they bought in Buenos Aires!) It was such a pleasure working with you and meeting your family. Please stay in touch and let us know if you are planning a trip to Boston.

Wishing you a Chag Kasher V'Sameach-Happy Passover!

Debbie and Gary Buchman”

“Dear Valeria,
Thank you so much for making the Temple Emanuel trip so wonderful and memorable!
People here at the Synagogue are still raving about the trip, all the great places and institutions we visited, the food, the variety of activities and how warmly they were greeted by the Jewish community in Buenos Aires. This wouldn’t have happened without your expertise and your charming and sweet personality.
I know how much time and effort you put into this trip, working for months in every single detail. I’m grateful to you!

Warm regards,  Cantor Elias Rosemberg”

“Hi Valeria

Just a short note to tell you we arrived home safely and to thank you again for opening up your beautiful city to all of us.  It was a pleasure to spend this short amount of time with you.  You could see in Elias's face the joy he too had in showing us his home town

Thank you again
Rita & Herb Gann” 


"It was a wonderful experience on so many levels for the 30 members of our Temple Emanuel community who participated. 

 First, working with Valeria was simply delightful. She put together a wonderful itinerary that struck just the right balance of touring and free time.  She is extremely well versed in all things Jewish in BA and -- with our input -- was able to plan in and out of city activities for our group (which skewed a bit older.).  The museums, Jewish agencies, synagogue tours were well informed and interesting.  We threw in a classical music concert at the opera house, tango lessons followed up by dinner and a show and a really fun day at an authentic estancia about an hour or so outside the city.
