Cincinnati Fellow in Israel (Cincy Fellow)

Through the Cincinnati Fellow in Israel program, an American young adult spends a year in our partnership city of Netanya, teaching Israelis about American culture and life as a Jew in the United States. The Cincy Fellow is part of the MASA Israel Teaching Fellows program, working with English classes at a junior high. In addition, the Cincy Fellow does outreach and education to people of all ages in the city of Netanya in order to expose Israelis to the full range of American pluralism. 

Camp Livingston Gesher Trip to Israel

As part of the Camp Livingston's summer Israel experience, American teens reconnect with their Israeli teen peers who had previously been campers at Livingston and experience Israel through and with their peers. The Israeli teens host their American camp friends in our partnership city of Netanya. 

March of the Living

Each year, we partner with the Mayerson JCC March of the Living (MOTL) trip in the spring. During the trip, Netanya peers host Cincinnati teen visitors for a special day in Netanya during Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzmaut. 

Onward Israel

This college internship program brings Cincinnati students to Israel for eight weeks during the summer. During this time in Israel, Netanya young adults host the visiting Cincinnati college students. This is an opportunity for Cincinnati students to experience real life in Israel with their peers. Often, they reconnect with Netanya residents who had previously been to Cincinnati as part of a partnership delegation and strengthen their relationships.
