Partnership2Gether Programs

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!

Professional Exchanges

Meeting and learning from professionals (whether from the Sovev Kinneret or from Milwaukee) is an effective way to create people-to-people connections between Israelis and Americans.

P2G Young Leadership Program (YA’AD)

YA’AD (Shay Shoshany Young Leadership Development Program) works closely with the Weinstein Fellowship, a leadership development program of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation.

Where is our “Partnership” region?

The Milwaukee Jewish community is paired with the Sovev Kinneret region in northern Israel. It includes the communities of the city of Tiberias, the Lower Galilee, the Jordan River Valley and Kvar Tavor. We share the partnership region with St. Paul, MN.

P2G Volunteer Opportunities

In an effort to foster one-on-one relationships between Americans and Israelis, P2G offers Milwaukeeans a number of different types of volunteer opportunities in the Sovev Kinneret. Contact P2G Coordinator Susie Rosengarten at 414-390-5762 to learn more.
