PARTNERSHIP2GETHER, a program of the Jewish Agency and the Jewish Federations of North America, promotes personal relationships between 16 U.S. Jewish communities and Israel’s Western Galilee through cultural, educational, social, medical and economic programs. PARTNERSHIP2GETHER is made up of an inclusive and active network of people focused on the mutual exchange of ideas and programs with the goal of developing relationships to strengthen our global Jewish Identity. Our programs are dedicated to connecting people and making a difference.


Through the P2G programs, our community members can be agents of change and create stronger bonds between the people in our communities. Dayton, Toledo and Youngstown, Ohio; Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Northwest Indiana and South Bend, Indiana; Louisville, Kentucky; Peoria and Springfield, Illinois; Des Moines, Iowa; Omaha, Nebraska; Buffalo, New York; and Austin, Fort Worth and San Antonio, Texas are linked with Budapest, Hungary and the Western Galilee, the most northern part of Israel on the Mediterranean coast.
