Partnership2Gether: Connecting Global Jewry

Established by the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) in 1995, the Partnership2Gether (P2G) peoplehood platform has become the paradigm for successfully partnering global Jewish communities directly with Israeli communities. Communities share ideas, strengths, challenges and models of success as well as empower one another to generate waves of change.

 

Our partnership cultivates close friendships between communities including:

 

USA

North Carolina: Charlotte and Greensboro

South Carolina: Charleston

Virginia: Richmond

Tennessee: Chattanooga, Nashville and Knoxville

Florida: Flagler and Volusia Counties, Lee & Charlotte Counties, Pinellas County and Jacksonville

 

Europe

Federation of Jewish Communities in Czech Republic

 

Israel

Hadera-Eiron Region: Hadera, Pardes-Hanna-Karkur, Menashe Regional Council and Alona Local Council

 

Partnership2Gether creates a living bridge between us, other southern communities and the Hadera-Eiron region of Israel. For us in Greensboro, that means peer to peer programs for young leaders, cultural exchanges, customized touring and home hospitality in the region for anyone that visits Israel, teen exchanges, and educational programming that connects teachers and students between the two communities. The impact of these projects goes far beyond the community level—each of us has the opportunity to become directly and personally involved.

 

If you would like to get involved with Partnership2Gether or want more information about any of our programs, please contact Laura Berke Hausman.

QUICK FACTS ABOUT HADERA-EIRON:

Approximately 25% of the population is comprised of Ethiopian and Russian olim (immigrants)

Hadera was founded in 1891 by members of Hovevei Zion, a group of Zionist immigrants from Russia and Eastern Europe.

In the early days, agriculture was the main occupation of Hadera's settlers. They planted field and vegetable garden crops and citrus groves. But as the population of Hadera increased, the economy expanded and industrialized.
