The Michigan-Central Galilee Partnership

The Michigan-Central Galilee Partnership

Welcome to your home in Israel! Since 1994, three Michigan communities, Metropolitan Detroit, Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids, have partnered with three municipalities in Israel, Migdal HaEmek, Nazareth Illit and the Jezreel Valley, located in a region referred to as the Central Galilee.

One of some 45 Jewish Agency Partnership2Gether parings, the program originally was designed to address needs in Israel. Today, the Partnership strives to build significant opportunities and sustain long-lasting, people-to-people relationships through a variety of collaborative programs and shared resources strengthening both communities.

Missions, exchanges and support of English Language instruction are today’s primary focuses. The goal of supporting education in the Central Galilee is to give every child and equal opportunity. Over 4,000 students in 25 schools throughout the region, 4th grade through high school, participate in various programs to enhance their English skills, providing them the tools to succeed in Israeli society.

Over many years, the Michigan communities and Central Galilee counterparts have become more than partners. We are inspired to connect our next generation. We are family. Two communities, one future.

Thousands of lives have been touched by the following Michigan-Central Galilee exchanges:
