Arad & Tamar and New Jersey & Delaware

Arad, Tamar and New Jersey and DelawareThe Jewish Agency for Israel ©

For over 18 years of the Jewish Agency’s Partnership2Gether (formally Partnership 2000) program has been a successful model for creating significant partnerships between Jewish communities around the world and Jewish communities in Israel. 

There are currently some 500 communities connected through 45 partnerships. Over the years the partnerships have become a base for the advancement, empowerment and development of a network of profound connections and mutual relations between Jewish communities, sharing ideas, strengths, challenges and successes, while empowering the partnership communities.

Our region, the city of Arad and the Tamar Regional Council, is partnered with a number of Jewish communities in New Jersey and Delaware in the United States. The partnership is partly carried out through programs operating at the same time in Israel and in the partner communities abroad, as well as through reciprocal visits by delegations of groups and individuals.

Springtime is always associated with renewal, building and blossoming, and this is how we wish to continue our Partnership, to develop and to grow.

Two years ago the Central New Jersey Jewish community, which was one of the largest communities in our Partnership, merged with the MetroWest New Jersey community. MetroWest is partnered with a number of communities in Israel, including Ofakim. Since Ofakim is quite close to our region, it was only natural that cooperative efforts  between the two partnerships continue , particularly when delegations come to visit both Arad and Ofakim, and joint projects which aim to encourage personal encounters to advance investment in the future of the communities are taking place in both regions.
