Three local women have been selected to represent Jacksonville in the next cohort of Israel Partnership's Leadership2Gether Program.  The program, set to kick off in mid-March will partner each participant with an Israeli with similar interests for an eight-month leadership study. The 2017 participants from the Jacksonville Jewish Community include Kaitlin Flynn, Ariel Frechtman and Rachael Rice. Each woman will have an opportunity to interact with a matched participant from Jax’s sister city of Hadera-Eiron.  Over the course of the program, they will explore the development of their own Jewish identity and how it affects their leadership styles today.  At the end of the course, all the participants, both American and Israeli will meet in Nashville, Tenn. for a fun weekend of joint-learning and leadership development. Program administrators are excited to see what these three future leaders bring back to share within their community here in Northeast Florida.
