Cleveland loves Beit Shean! The energy was electric at our Celebrate our Partnership event, where 400+ people gathered to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the partnership between Cleveland and our sister city of Beit Shean and Valley of Springs, Israel.

We welcomed our largest-ever Israeli delegation in history, with more than 40 friends from Beit Shean joining us to dance, sing, and celebrate. The connection we've built with our sister city is inspiring! "Our lives are much richer because of the relationships we have built," said Federation President Stephen H. Hoffman, who was at the helm when the partnership was created.

Here's to another 20 years! We are Stronger Together!
