Partnership Discovery Program for Lifetime Learners

Partnership2Gether Western Galilee Central Area Consortium is sponsoring a Partnership Discovery Program for Lifetime Learners Oct. 27 to Nov. 4.

The program provides an opportunity for young retirees to experience the Parntership2Gether Western Galilee region as well as Budapest, Hungary with in-depth, thought-provoking lectures and field trips with local experts in the areas of security, multiculturalism, arts, sustainability, and tolerance. It will give participants the opportunity to learn more about everyday life in the region and to talk with individuals face to face in their living rooms and places of work. It will allow participants to gain a better and deeper understanding of life in the region and to build personal relationships.

The cost for the Western Galilee portion is $500 and the Partnership Discovery in Budapest is an additional $500. These costs include accommodations, program costs and most meals. Flights are not included and must be arranged and purchased by the participant(s).  

The Youngstown Area Jewish Federation will subsidize half the cost of each leg (excluding flights) for participants. The Federation suggests an increase to each participant's Campaign gift by a minimum of $125/leg for the 2019 and 2020 Campaigns.  

The deadline to register is June 1. For more information on the trip, or to register, contact Heidi Benish at For questions about the subsidy, please contact Lisa Long, Federation financial resource development director, at
