On the Ground in Israel and NJ

A personal view of our efforts in Israel from Amir Shacham, Associate Executive Vice President, Israel and Overseas

A Life-long Optimist

Our partnership with the community of Ofakim in Israel is a direct result of then Prime Minister Shimon Peres. Two of his life-long passions were strengthening Israel/Diaspora relationships while at the same time helping the Negev.

Today Is a Big Day

Today, September 1, in Ramat Eliyahu, our longest-standing partner community, is an excellent day to showcase our Greater MetroWest impact.

GMW as Matchmaker

Over the years, our Federation has played a critical role in Israel as a shadchan, or matchmaker, bringing Israeli communities and organizations together to work collaboratively toward their mutual, larger goals.

Hugs and Kisses

As I end my term in New Jersey this week, I look forward to returning to Israel and continuing our Global Connections work from our Greater MetroWest office in Jerusalem.

An Oasis in the Desert

For nearly 15 years, our Greater MetroWest Federation has had a powerful connection and partnership with Kibbutz Erez, a community of approximately 500 residents in the northern Negev facing the Gaza Strip border.
