Partnership 2Gether (P2G) creates relationships between the people of the Hadera-Eiron region in Israel and 10 southeastern US communities. Here in Charleston, that has so far manifested itself in peer to peer programs for young leaders, customized touring and home hospitality in the region for Charlestonians that visit Israel, and educational programming that connects teachers and students between the two communities.
Charleston is one of ten Southeastern cities that is proud to partner with the Hadera Eiron Region.
We send teachers to Israel to learn about the Israeli school system . During their visit, educators tour in the region and learn about the history and culture of the Israeli people. "Twinning" programs, where classrooms can become pen pals, are also available to any teacher in the Charleston area.
Our Leadership 2Gether program for young professionals lets you study Jewish leadership with an Israeli friend, followed by both a retreat in the Southeast and in Israel.
Each summer we send American teens to travel through Israel with their Israeli peers. Along with touring the country, the Americans are housed with families and instantly feel the unique experience of not being a tourist but instead being an Israeli. Later, the American teens reciprocate a similar experience here in Charleston with Israeli teens.
We encourage anyone from Charleston who has plans to be in Israel to consider a visit to the region where you will be greeted by our friends, offered home hospitality, and provided with a customized behind-the-scenes and off-the-beaten-path tourism experience based on your interests. To start planning your visit, please contact Erin Boynton.
