Northeastern NY Delegation to Eshkol

Some 70 NENY delegates spent an intensive day visiting the Eshkol Region during Hannukah, where they were joined by 40 active local Partnership2Gether volunteers. The delegation was originally scheduled to visit last year, but the visit was deferred on account of Operation Pillar of Cloud. Participants were most impressed by the Israeli peers’ willingness to take time out of their busy schedules and engage with them, in addition to the warm welcome they received everywhere. “Our third stop of the day was at the campus for middle and high school students,” writes Rob Kovach. “Our 7th grade daughter, Bina, who had been corresponding with one of their 7th graders through a pen-pal program, was absolutely blown away by the incredible reception that she received from the students there.”
