Shoham / Memphis School Twining

An educational framework that connects schools in Shoham with Jewish schools in Memphis. Currently in twining: Shoham Shachaf (democratic) and Rabin elementary, and Yahalom junior high twinned with Bornblum Jewish Community School in Memphis. Shalhevet Ulpana and Yeshiva in Shoham twinned with Margolin Hebrew Academy in Memphis. Connections are not only virtual twin classes from Yahalom school and Bornblum met in April, 2017 for a full day of activity, engagement and celebration of friendship. "We met up with some kids from Yahalom school at Shoham on the last day of the trip [annual school trip to Israel]. They were super nice, and we had a lot of fun. It's great to see how schools work in Israel and how similar but different people are. We were herding sheep together, we learned how to use a bow and arrow, and it was great connecting with Israeli students and see how fast we become one group." Naomi Sandler
