    Beit Shean-Valley Of Springs - Cleveland

    A women's delegation of women from the Beit Shean Region, with specialists in ethnic home cooking, brought scents of Israel and the Partnership region to Cleveland. The mission took part during Yom Ha’atzmaut events in Cleveland, and produced community events where the women told stories of their Jewish heritage and life in Beit Shean through the food they cooked. Thousands from the Jewish community in Cleveland were astounded by the amazing food made by the women, and as a result, experienced an utterly different but unique connection to the Partnership.

    Beer Sheva-Bnei Shimon - Montreal

    In recent years, the YAD domain of the Montreal Beer Sheva/Bnei Shimon partnership has suffered from decreasing engagement. We believe this stems mainly from the lack of a clear connection to our partnership region and its people. We believe the best way to address this ambiguity and disconnect is by bringing together the young leaders of community organizations and social enterprises in both Montreal and Beer Sheva for a top level Young Leaders’ Summit. Taking place in September 2017, this summit brought together identified leaders, entrepreneurs and creative thinkers from both communities for a weekend of professional development and brainstorming around Jewish identity, communities in the diaspora and Israel, and Young Adult engagement.
