he children of Hadera, Migdal
HaEmek, Netanya and
Nazareth Mit soon will hear
from new friends in Farmington Hills,
West Bloomfield, Birmingham,
Southfield and Huntington Woods.
The two communities — one in
Israel's Central Galilee region and the
other in southeast Michigan — are
linked by the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit's
Partnership 2000 pro-
gram.
Last spring, Federation's
Grand Challenge
Emergency Fund
launched School-To-
School to give special
attention to the schools in
the Partnership 2000
region.
The program began
during Purim celebrations
at 15 metro Detroit
Jewish supplementary
schools. Each local school
had been assigned a spe-
cific partner school in the Central
Galilee. As children came to the
School-To-School booth at their syna-
gogue's Purim carnivals, a volunteer
took their photos with a Federation-
supplied instant camera. Each child
was asked to write a short note to go
with the photo.
The photos and notes were assem-
bled into scrapbooks, said Dr. Lynda
Giles, who co-chairs School-To-
School with Robert Naftaly. The
scrapbooks will be taken to the 12
participating Central Galilee schools
by one of the two Partnership 2000
delegations slated to go to Israel later
in June.
"What we need to do is build a
connection between the children in
the two communities," Dr. Giles said.
"This was the first step."
More intensive projects are planned
for next year, said Aviva Panush, who
has been coordinating the School-To-
School Program through the Agency
for Jewish Education. With the incor-
poration of the agency into
Federation's Alliance for Jewish
Education, Panush is now Alliance's

associate director of professional
development.
"We have forwarded a list of poten-
tial projects to religious school direc-
tors," Panush said. "We're trying to
find a way to make this more of a part
of the schools' curriculum.
"For instance, a fifth-grader here
might be doing a history project
about Jewish heroes and sharing that
information back and forth with a
child doing a similar project in
Israel."

"What we need
to do is build a
connection
between the
children in the
two communities."
— Dr: Lynda Giles

Other ideas use the Internet to
share family histories, discuss the
news or write stories together.
"We are open to whatever works for
the specific schools here and the
schools there," Panush said.
School-To-School is also raising
funds for hot meals and after-school
care in the Partnership 2000 region,
which has been badly hit by Israel's
faltering economy and decline in pub-
lic assistance programs.
So far, the Detroit community has
raised about $560,000 for the com-
bined school partnership, hot lunch
and after-school programs, through
the Grand Challenge and direct con-
tributions from supplementary school
families.
In all, Detroit is responsible for
nearly $1 million of the overall $3.2
million needed for School to School.
The remainder comes from Israel's
education ministry and the Sacta-
Rashi Foundation, a French organiza-
tion that has poured about $25 mil-
lion per year into Israeli education
and welfare programs over the past 25
years. 1-1
