Meet Jen Kaplan

I graduated from The Ohio State University last May with a degree in Accounting. Soon after, I took a job at a prestigious public Accounting firm. I realized after working full time in the field (and study all other hours of the day for my CPA exams) that Accounting wasn’t a passion of mine - I wanted a more creative job, and even more than that I wanted to be back in Israel. I spent time there during university through Onward Israel, an internship program supported by the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.

A Weekend in Beit Shean

Growing up in the Jewish community in Cleveland, I always learned about our awesome partnership region: Beit She’an and the Valley and Springs. In fact, this year marks the 20th anniversary of our partnership together so I was especially eager to spend some quality time there. I have always considered Beit She’an and the surrounding area to be special and beautiful, but I realized that my non-Cleveland friends had no idea that this place even existed. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to bring two friends, one from New Jersey and one from Paris, to this special region in the north to show them what makes Beit She’an and the Valley of Springs so special.
