A few weeks ago, a group of teenagers from Charlotte and Israel came to visit us through the Charleston Jewish community's relationship with Partnership 2Gether, an initiative of Charleston Jewish Federation that builds living bridges between a consortium of Southeastern cities in the U.S. and the Hadera-Eiron region in Israel (25 miles north of Tel Aviv). We are especially thrilled that wonderful KKBE members were able to host our guests, since, thanks to Melanie Archer, a classroom-to-classroom partnership with the KKBE religious school and the Gevanim Middle school Hadera will be launching school year!
The group was joined by some of our local Charleston teens as well, many of them alumni of URJ Camp Coleman, and having just returned from Israel themselves as part of an organized trips through NFTY, URJ's youth group. The Charlotte teens are also connected with the same youth group.
