Bi-annually, professional and lay leadership representing Jewish federations of Canada - UIA and the Jewish Federations of Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Halifax get together to review the Coast-to-Coast partnership agenda.
Every November, they tour Northern Israel to visit community funded projects and meet with people living in five Galilee Panhandle development towns and councils – Galil Elyon, Kiryat Shmona, Metulla, Mevo’ot HaHermon & Yessod HaMa’ala. During the visit they are able to see first hand how the funds raised in their communities in Canada are enhancing communities in Israel.
Each May, they are joined in a Canadian community by the Israeli partnership professionals. The Canadian meetings rotate between the cities of Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Halifax.
