A delegation of 14 American students who participated in a year-long Young Leadership course sponsored by Partnership2Gether of the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey, and hosted at the Bergen County High School of Jewish Studies, just returned home from a week-long mission to Israel. They spent the week with their Young Leadership counterparts from their sister city of Nahariya, who hosted them in their homes. Together, they toured Tel Aviv, visiting Israel’s Independence Hall, the Michael Levin Lone Soldiers Center and the Carmel Market. They toured northern Israel,visiting Rosh Hanikra, the Lebanon border, the city of Acco and the Golan Heights. They also spent time visiting their counterparts’ high schools, learning about high school in Israel. They spent their last day in Jerusalem visiting Ammunition Hill, the Knesset, Mount Herzl, the Jewish Quarter and the Western Wall before they said their tearful farewells.
