Jewish Agency To Boost Youth Spending

The Jewish Agency for Israel has voted a significant boost in the resources it invests in forging ties between Jewish youth abroad and young Israelis, according to a strategic plan approved this week by the agency’s board of governors.

The board convened its quarterly meeting October 25 in Jerusalem, with an agenda topped by plans for combating the weakening of Diaspora Jewish ties to Israel.

The principal recommendation in the plan — aside from the agency’s usual work in promoting immigration and investments in Israel — concerns giving preference to programs dealing with Jewish identity and Israeli-Diaspora ties.
