Partnership2Gether (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.
Study and research freshwater ecosystems in this program designed for current high school sophomores and juniors. You’ll collaborate and share knowledge in this cross-cultural program, studying the waters of Lake Michigan and the Sea of Galilee. The program includes a trip to Israel to learn first-hand about complex freshwater ecosystems and to help develop solutions via hands-on research for the future of water conservation. Following, Israeli students will come to Milwaukee for a similar study.
Cost: Approximately $1,350.00 to cover the cost of round-trip transportation and airfare to Israel

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.
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.
