JUF's Partnership Together (P2G) is a program of the Jewish Agency for Israel that links communities in the Diaspora with communities in Israel. Chicago's P2G region of Kiryat Gat-Lachish-Shafir is located in Israel's northern Negev. Through P2G, more than $1 million of funding from JUF's annual campaign supports projects that promote the region's development, improve the quality of life for its residents and connects them with Chicago Jewry through "people-to-people" programs.
