How we partner with Rosh Ha'ayin, Israel

 

Through Partnership2Gether (P2G), more than 550 communities around the world are partnered with sister cities in Israel. Through these relationships, communities work together on diverse projects and ultimately forge connections among their participants that last a lifetime. New Orleans is proud of the relationship we have cultivated with Rosh Ha’ayin, a city with “Music in its heart.” From an emergency medical symposium to a jazz festival in Israel and school twinning programs, Partnership2Gether (P2G) has had an incredible year! This video only touches the surface on our amazing partnership. It was created by German high school students during New Orleans’ May jazz exchange with Jason Marsalis. 


From December 11 to December 17, the P2G Steering Committee will meet in New Orleans to devise another exciting and rewarding year of partnership programming, and we want you to join us for a memorable week of receptions, community activities, and site seeing! To learn more about how you can help welcome our Rosh Ha’ayin family to the Big Easy and join us during this exciting week, please contact Allison Kushner at Allison@jewishnola.com or 504-780-5688. 

Statement from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans on the Death of Orwah Hammad

We were saddened to learn of the death of Orwah Hammad, the Palestinian-American teenager who had family roots here in New Orleans. Our fervent sympathies are with his family, as the loss of any life is always tragic and painful.


The incident is being investigated by the Israeli authorities, but as we wait to learn more about what happened, we continue our prayers and hopes for a meaningful peace that allows Israel and a Palestinian state to live together side-by-side as neighbors.
