The Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester, and its Partnership 2Gether Steering Committee, once again is pleased to sponsor an Educators Delegation to Modiin, Israel, as part of our partnership program with the city of Modiin. The visit is an extension of our Education Bridge with Modiin’s school system, which seeks to foster meaningful connections between schools, teachers and students in Modifin, and in the greater Rochester community. To date more than 30 educators from the Rochester community have participated in past trips to Modiin. Those teachers, who have met face to face with their matched teacher in Israel, have developed deep and meaningful relationships that have had ripple effects in both their professional and personal lives.
The dates of the trip this year are February 16-25, 2014, which coincide with school vacation in Rochester.
