From January 29 through February 14, Federation Program Director Stacy Kamisar was in Israel to experience the true living bridge we have created between our community and our partner region of Afula-Gilboa. Stacy spent her days visiting the different beneficiary organizations we support. Follow her visit with Ethiopian olim in Beit Alfa Absorption Center, to Emek Medical Center, where our Federation helped establish the Katz Family Breast Health Initiative, and to the Beit Singer animal-therapy zoo for at-risk children. Don’t miss her feedback as she shares her experiences interviewing and training the new shinshinim who will join the SNEC region next fall as our 2018-19 Israeli Emissaries. Best of all, share her joy as she reunites with all of our former emissaries, who gathered on February 8th to celebrate 20 years of SNEC emissary life. Join Stacy on her journey and see how this living bridge with Israel is strengthened each year with our commitment to this beautiful region – the heart of the Jezre'el Valley.
