Israeli Business Leaders visit Omaha

From June 1 through June 6, 2016, Israeli business leaders, as part of the Partnership2Gether  (P2G) Program from the Western Galilee region of Israel, made a visit to the Jewish Federation of Omaha. P2G exists to promote enduring and meaningful partnerships between global Jewish communities and communities in Israel. The focus of this visit was to create business connections  while demonstrating the crucial role of philanthropy in creating and maintaining a robust Jewish community.

The JFO would like to extend its sincere thanks to the members of the Omaha Jewish community that met with the delegation, hosted meals, attended meals, assisted with transportation, and took the time to say hello. The delegation felt very welcomed by our community.
If you are interested in being involved with P2G, please contact Nate Shapiro, Director of Development,
This, That, and the Other Thing
Sand and water become accessible to those in wheelchairs if they have THIS.

"California Girls," "I Get Around," "Shut Down," "Little Deuce Coupe" and "Surfer Girl," all have something in common with Ra'anana and Tel Aviv.  That's THE OTHER THING.
