Federations & Jewish Agency Host Knesset Delegation in U.S.

Eight members of Israel’s Knesset spent four days visiting Jewish communities in New York and New Jersey on a trip co-sponsored by Jewish Federations of North America and The Jewish Agency for Israel. The trip, which culminated this week, aimed to expose members of Israel’s Knesset to the rich diversity of Jewish communal life in North America, challenges communities face and Federation initiatives to support the Israeli people. They also met with Jewish Agency shlichim to hear how they work to strengthen the next generation’s connection to Israel.  Members of the mission represent a diverse group of parties from the coalition and opposition.
