Israel Education: Global School Twinning Informational Webinar
New York, NY 10018
How can we turn Israel from an abstract concept into a vibrant, meaningful place for our students so that they will feel deeply connected to both the land and its people?
The Jewish Agency for Israel's Global School Twinning Network has been successfully connecting thousands of students in Israel and around the world—creating direct and authentic relationships between them. The Jewish Education Project is hosting an informational webinar for Day Schools and Religious Schools in our area to learn about this wonderful opportunity to bond with a twin school in Israel, share the beauty of your community and learn about your extended Israeli family across the ocean. Through this project, the ruach (spirit), faces, and culture of your Israeli twin school will become part of the fabric of your educational community. Hear about how your school can join.
- Twinning programs promote the sense of Jewish Peoplehood and shared responsibility for students in schools around the world and Israel schools alike.
- Students have the chance to meet (virtual) each other for dynamic conversations around issues such as Jewish Identity and Social Responsibility.
- Twinning programs link educators for professional and personal enrichment.
