The Boston-Haifa Connection has been changing lives and opening hearts since it was established by Combined Jewish Philanthropies and the City of Haifa in 1989. For the past 30 years, we have been strengthening the dynamic partnership between sister cities, resulting in two vibrant, deeply connected communities.
