4. Partnership 2000 from Lead Project to Support Strategic Platform

Whereas Partnership is a major goal of JAFI's Strategic Planning Process

And Whereas a resolution supporting Partnership has been passed by the JAFI Assembly

And Whereas JAFI's Partnership 2000 is World Jewry's most significant program for ensuring Israel Diaspora relations

And Whereas in over 10 years of existence Partnership 2000 has grown to 42 plus partnerships encompassing over 80 Israeli municipalities and regional authorities and over 350 Jewish communities abroad

And Whereas Partnership 2000 focuses' World Jewry's attention on priority areas in the Galil, Negev and Jerusalem

And Whereas through the Partnership 2000 Platform over 600 projects take place on a yearly basis that impact the lives of tens of thousands of Israelis and Diaspora Jewry

And Whereas in November 2003 the new Mission and Vision of Partnership 2000 was ratified by JAFI's Israel Committee and by UJC and Keren Hayesod

And Whereas Partnership 2000 is a major strategic asset of the Jewish Agency that can provide a strategic platform and human infrastructure for realization of JAFI's overall strategies in Aliyah and Jewish Zionist Education.
