The IDB Group, which is a partner of the Jewish Agency in projects throughout Israel, toured various Jewish Agency centers in the North which assist new immigrants.
Participants in the tour included the director-general of the IDB Fund, Rami Mardor, projects director of the IDB Fund, David Levy, and the director-general of the Aliyah Department. On their tour they visited a number of centers: an ulpan at Kibbutz Ein Hashofet, an absorption center in Upper Nazareth, and the absorption center in Safed where a coffee drinking ceremony (Boneh), a traditional ceremony of the Ethiopian Jewish community, took place.
The IDB Group headed by Nochi Dankner is continuing its activity in partnership with Jewish communities throughout the world and the Jewish Agency on the basis of matching grants to expand the construction and development of educational facilities and enrichment programs in the Negev and the Galilee.
