Youth Delegations to Europe
Ramat-Gan has friendship, twin-cities and youth exchange connections with Germany and the USA.
Our youth delegations visit in Europe lasts two weeks, during which the Ramat-Gan youth are hosted in home hospitality with their peers and experience the country, family lives etc.
The youth enjoy trips, visits in schools, museums and historic sites. One of the subjects being highlighted is the Holocaust, expressed by joint visit of the Israeli and youth from abroad in memorial sites in Europe and coping with the harsh sights through joint dialogues.
After two weeks of home hospitality abroad, with lots of experiences and new connections, the youth return to Israel and anxiously wait to host their newly made friends in Ramat-Gan.
Educational trip to Poland
In recent years the groups going from Ramat-Gan to Poland are increasing in numbers. Going to Poland is an educational trip, requiring a lot of preparation for the harsh experiences when visiting the extermination camps.
The preparation process is being conducted by the schools and includes studies, seminars, lectures and tour in Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.
The foreign affairs department, as representative of the authority, gives her sponsorship to these trips and assists the schools.
