Last month we had a delegation of Israeli principals visit us from Nahariya thanks to our participation in the amazing Partnership2Gether initiative. It was a really great experience that demonstrated both the power of Israel and the Jewish Federation to bring together people from a wide variety of backgrounds. It also inspired me to write a blog post which was picked up by the Times of Israel website - click here for full post.
If Israel can bring together Orthodox and Reform, Democrat and Republican, secular and religious, 1% and 99%, Red Sox fans, Yankees fans and even people who love falafel but hate shawarma (blasphemy), why not put more effort into growing these partnerships between visionaries on both sides and build a true global community of Jews?
