Mayor Newsom heading to Israel with Federation's Mission

Next week, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will join the Jewish Community Federation’s (JCF) trip to Israel. While in Israel, Newsom will participate in a clean-tech showcase, promoting Israel’s innovative activities and industrial approach to alternative energy and bio-fuels. Additionally, he will be the first San Francisco Mayor to visit San Francisco’s city’s sister city, Haifa, and will meet with Haifa Mayor Yonah Yahav. He will also visit Umm el-Fahm, an Arab-Israeli town that is one of the sites for Echad – a Jewish Community Federation funded program focused on early childhood education in the Arab Israeli community.

BTW... Mission participants will be sending in stories, photos, and videos throughout their trip, so please check back in with this blog in early May for updates.
