Israeli Shaliach / Partnership 2Gether (P2G)

Hadar Pe'er, St. Paul Community Shaliach

 

Meet our new Shaliach, Hadar Pe'er! Hadar grew up in Lod, a city of coexistence between Arabs and Jews, and now lives in Rehovot. He grew up in a youth movement called Habonim Dror-Blue Shirts where he guided and educated groups of students of all ages. In the army, he served in the upper schools helping students decide which unit to join after graduation and took an active role in a youth club for at-risk children. Today, Hadar studies social sciences and humanities, and volunteers with a child who has special needs. He loves the Hebrew language, music and vegetarian Mediterranean cooking. He can't wait to meet the St. Paul Jewish community. 

 

We are grateful to have Hadar working in our community! Contact him at shlichut@stpaulfed.org or 651-353-2670.

  • Organizations

 

This upcoming year of 2020/21 due to covid 19, our partnership had to think outside of the box. We have come up with some amazing virtual projects to do together:

Continuing Shaliach Program, Changing 2Gether-volunteering in our Communities, Virtual Second Generation Survivors Education Series, Virtual Special Education Seminar Series, School Twinning (partnering classrooms in St Paul/Israel), StartUp2Gether (Farm Tech), Israel Book Club, Women Hoping 2Gether, Zooming 2Gether, Zicaron Teamim, and Kol Koreh.


Do any of these projects interest you or want more information on a particular project? Do you have or want a connection to Israel? Do you have any ideas, interests, want to meet new people, make new friends or just want to volunteer for an important cause?

We are always looking for new community members to join our P2G committee and family.

Please contact Stacy Dockman, Community Program Coordinator at sdockman@stpaulfed.org or 651-695-3182 and find out all of the opportunities available and become a part of this exciting and important partnership.

What is Partnership 2Gether (P2G)?

Partnership 2Gether is a program of the St. Paul Jewish Federation and the Jewish Agency for Israel, designed to cultivate people-to-people relationships, projects and professional programs between St. Paul and our partner region, Sovev Kinneret, in Israel. Volunteers from St. Paul collaborate with their Israeli counterparts on cultural, social and educational exchanges.

WHERE IS OUR PARTNERSHIP REGION?

The St. Paul 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 with Milwaukee.

How does P2G work?

Through a committee comprised of community leaders from St. Paul, Milwaukee, and the Sovev Kinneret region, we collaborate on community development projects and exchange programs each year. St. Paul Jewish community members can visit and volunteer in our Partnership Region.

 

Keeping Israel and overseas Jewish communities safe, strong and prosperous has always been one of our top priorities. We provide meaningful support in times of need while, at the same time, promoting individual connections through travel opportunities, educational programs and cultural exchanges. Opportunities to get involved abound.
