Forty Tulane New Orleans University students toured Israel on TAGLIT BIRTHRIGHT, and were joined by eight soldiers from Rosh Ha’ayin during the week long visit in the framework of the Partnership’s Birthright2GETHER program. The group arrived in Rosh Ha’ayin on Monday May 14, 2012, were welcomed by local Israeli Scouts youth movement members, took part in an Israeli Scouting activity and competitions, and learned scouting style cheerleading. Later in the evening they were hosted by families for an Israeli dinner. In spite of the geographical distance it seems that the connection between New Orleans and Rosh Ha’ayin is closer than ever! A second group of students is planned to arrive in summer 2013.
