Explore the Opportunities at Negba!

If you're searching for an Israel project that enhances Jewish identity, includes hands-on involvement and impacts your life and the lives of your peers across the globe, then Negba is your natural partner. Those goals are of great important to us, too. We'd be delighted to explore these and other possibilities with you:

  • Purim- Mishloach Manot/ Purim card exchange
  • Yom Ha'atzmaut / Pesach- Distance Dialogue: Am I free? Expressive multimedia project about the meaning of independence to me as a youth today
  • Together, design and edit a shared website about a particular topic
  • Cooperatively write a news article to each community's newspaper about the other community
  • Collaborate to produce a joint B'nai Mitzvah album
  • Study a shared B'nai Mitzvah theme or Torah portion together

  • Other idea that you'd like to propose….

Opportunities for Professional Interaction and Shared Learning

Negba encourages the development of reciprocal relationships between its social service and education professionals and their colleagues working with children at risk in Diaspora Jewish communities. Peers in both communities could learn from one another about the challenges and uniquenesses in dealing with children at risk in both communities. Dialogues conducted via SKYPE videoconferencing, written correspondence and possible exchange visits in each city would facilitate the exploration and sharing of strategies and techniques in dealing with children at risk. Together, the two communities would grow stronger as one.
