P2G is a program of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation and the Jewish Agency for Israel, designed to cultivate people-to-people relationships, projects and professional programs between Milwaukee and our partner region, Sovev Kinneret, in Israel. Volunteers from Milwaukee collaborate with their Israeli counterparts on education, cultural exchanges, regional planning, medical care, ecological and economic development initiatives.
Shin Shin Program
Shin shins are young Israeli cultural emissaries who spend a year in service in Milwaukee before beginning their service in the army. Meet our shin shinim, Omer and Orni!
Our programs for youth include school twinning, where teachers and students from schools in the Sovev Kinneret work together with classes from Milwaukee, and Teen Mifgash, a summer youth exchange between teens from Milwaukee and Sovev Kinneret. P2G also builds bridges between young Americans and Israelis.
P2G Young Leadership Program
Ya’ad (Shay Shoshany Young Leadership Development Program) works closely with the Weinstein Fellowship, a leadership development program of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
