Our Federation’s Global Teen Twinning Program turned 20 this year! On Sunday, December 10th, join hundreds of program alumni, families, and educators to celebrate Twinning’s meaningful impact on thousands of teens and their families over the past two decades — in Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, and Vilnius.

Join us to share your memories and hear powerful stories about this unique program that fosters a greater connection to Israel, one relationship at a time.

During this special evening, we will also recognize Dr. Bruce Powell, Head of School, de Toledo High School, for 20 years of leadership and support of Twinning.

If you are unable to attend, please consider making a donation to our Twinning Scholarship Fund to pay it forward and enable even more teens to have this formative experience.

Israeli wines and refreshments will be served. Dietary laws observed.

RSVP by Friday, December 1st.

Event proceeds will go directly to our Federation’s Twinning Scholarship Fund and will help support the future of this program.

We look forward to gathering in honor of Twinning and its achievements over the years — after all, uniting as one community is what this program is all about.
