Israeli students learn about life in Nebraska

admin's picture
Israeli students spent a week learning about American culture and lifestyles in the Tecumseh and Cook area as guests of Johnson County Central Schools, October 24-31.
Ten students and one adult chaperone from Ra’anana, Israel learned about life in Nebraska while staying with host families of Johnson County Central Schools for one week, October 24-31. This student exchange visit is part of a program sponsored by the America-Israel Friendship League. Five school districts from the United States are chosen annually, along with five communities in Israel. Communities are matched up and students experience life in the “sister community.” JCC’s sister community is Ra’anana, which is located just north of Tel Aviv. Johnson County Central was chosen because of Superintendent Jack Moles’ participation in an AIFL Superintendent visit to Israel last March.
