Connecting Our Worlds
Partnership2Gether, a program of the Jewish Agency, is made up of an inclusive and active network of people focused on the exchange of ideas and programs with the goal of developing relationships to strengthen our global Jewish identity. The Michigan communities of Ann Arbor, Detroit, and Grand Rapids are linked with the Central Galilee communities of Migdal Ha’Emek, Nof HaGalil, and the Jezreel Valley regional council. Within this larger partnership, Ann Arbor has a special relationship with Moshav Nahalal.
Through our flagship program, Ann Arbor-Nahalal Student Exchange, Ann Arbor 9th graders are able to spend their spring break on a ten-day visit in Israel. Their home base is Moshav Nahalal, where they receive home hospitality at the homes of Nahalal teens and their families. Participants explore Nahalal and the Central Galilee and visit Jerusalem and Tel Aviv along with their peers from Nahalal. The following fall, the Nahalal cohort visits Ann Arbor to learn about our community, spend time with their friends, and experience the different lifestyle of Jewish teens in North America.
Other Partnership2Gether programs include combined delegation participation in the JCC Maccabi Games & Art Fest, Women’s Exchange, and other group and individual visits between the two communities.
