Partnership 2Gether offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

Partnership 2Gether is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate the 65th Anniversary of Israel this fall in the Israel.

This nine-day Partnership Trip 2Gether mission, scheduled for September 21 through October 1, will bring people from the Central Area Consortium to the Western Galilee where participants will engage in a wide variety of artistic, cultural and heritage experiences as they connect with the extended Partnership 2Gether family in Israel. In addition to three nights in the North, the trip includes four nights in Jerusalem and one night in Tel Aviv.

The Partnership Trip2Gether itinerary is broad and richly diverse. It includes the opportunity to discover and learn about Jerusalem’s treasures by visiting New Yitzak Rabin Center, Old City and Kotel, City of David tunnel excavation, the newly renovated Israel Museum and Yad Vashem; tour the galleries and shops of Old Jaffa and Old Akko, and sail into the caves at Rosh Hanikra.

There will also be time to recharge the soul and engage the senses with some of the region’s most compelling artistic offerings, including the opening gala of Ballet Austin’s Light/The Holocaust & Humanity performance, Akko: Israel Festival of Alternative Theatre & The Arts, as well as arts workshops and other partnership experiences.

Partnership Trip2Gether also offers the chance to make a real difference together by deepening faith connections and working on projects with Israeli friends in the Western Galilee, including meeting with Lone Soldiers and MASA youth.

Partnership Trip2Gether is one of many activities spawned by the larger initiative Partnership 2Gether, a program first introduced in 1997. Similar to the popular Sister Cities effort, Partnership 2Gether affords many opportunities for people on both sides of the ocean to work together in the fields of medicine, arts, education, twinning, co-existence, leadership development, culture, business development, economics and tourism.

With 45 Partnerships worldwide, Louisville is part of the Midwest Consortium of communities that also includes Akron, Canton, Dayton, Toledo and Youngstown, OH; Indianapolis, Northwest Indiana and South Bend, IN; Louisville; Des Moines, IA; Omaha, NE; and Austin, Dallas and San Antonio TX. These consortium cities partner with Israel’s Western Galilee area that includes the city of Akko, the Western Galilee Hospital and the rural communities of the Matte Asher Regional Council along the Mediterranean Sea.

Since its inception in Louisville, Partnership 2Gether has produced many meaningful cross-country exchanges in the arts, education and medicine and collaborations on business ventures. The Partnership is supported by the Jewish Federation of Louisville Campaign.
