Last week a group of Israeli high schoolers from Nahariya visited their American counterparts. They traveled to area schools and interacted with hundreds of students. Highlights included a visit with the Israeli delegation at the United Nations, packing and sorting food at the Center for Food Action, and touring the Englewood Police Station for an understanding of how first responders perform their duties — similarly to the way Israeli first responders perform theirs.
This young leadership delegation is sponsored and organized by the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey. It consists of 13 Israeli high school students from three schools in Nahariya, JFNNJ’s Israeli sister city. The students were here for seven days, visiting schools, doing community service projects and meeting their American peers.
