Baltimore – Ashkelon Partnership

The Associated’s commitment to connecting Jews in Baltimore with Jews in Israel reaches its apex with the Baltimore-Ashkelon Partnership. Ashkelon has been our sister city since 2003, and not surprisingly, the needs of the vulnerable Jews in Ashkelon are similar to the needs of vulnerable Jews in Baltimore. Our two communities have been intimately involved in planning for and meeting those needs together. Planning in both cities happens in parallel — with committees of lay leaders and professionals meeting once a year to determine mutual priorities.
