What Others Have to Say

Why Being a Host Was Important to Me

Deborah Gilboa


Deborah Gilboa, MD

Summer Shlichim Host


"Hosting for Partnership2Gether is one of the most rewarding and fun ways you'll find to meet Israelis. The guests we've hosted through the years have become family friends, celebrating simchas together and keeping up with the details of daily life between our two countries. What a wonderful way to have a home if you are able to make it to Israel, each of our guests has not only offered but insisted that we come stay with them!"

"We very much enjoyed hosting children through Partnership2Gether. The kids were all very appreciative of the opportunity to visit Pittsburgh. They had a unique perspective on American life, and it was fun to share our perspective with them. In turn, they got the opportunity to tell us about life in Israel and reverse roles with us. Overall, the exchange of cultures was rewarding for all involved"
