55% of all Israelis Are Prepared to Invest time in Activities Designed to
Strengthen Ties with World Jewry

The results of the survey will be presented at a national convention of the
Jewish Agency as part of the 'Partnership 2000' program which works to
create partnerships between Jewish communities worldwide and communities in
Israel

About 55% of Israel's residents are willing to take an active part and
invest their time to strengthen ties with world Jewry. This emerges from a
survey conducted by the Jewish Agency as part of the Partnership 2000
program that bonds between Jewish communities worldwide and communities in
Israel. The survey was conducted by the 'Elixir' Research Institute among a
random national sample of 1,830 homes.

The Partnership 2000 program of the Jewish Agency creates partnerships
between Jewish communities worldwide and communities in Israel. Today there
are 45 partnerships which take place between 550 Jewish communities
worldwide and dozens of regional councils and communities in Israel. The
program serves as a 'living bridge' between tens of thousands of Jews
worldwide and the residents of Israel and aids in promoting social and
educational projects. The Orlando Jewish Community has recently joined the
Partnership 2000 program, and will be the partner community of Kiryat
Motzkin.

The survey reveals that 39% of those interviewed are willing to take an
active part in strengthening ties with world Jewry and are willing to invest
7 hours a month on average for this purpose. An additional 16% were willing
to invest even more time on the issue. Furthermore, 74% of those questioned
noted that they view reinforced ties with world Jewry as significant to very
significant. Almost half of those questioned were aware of the Partnership
2000 program that works to strengthen the ties between Israel and world
Jewry.

The results of the survey will be presented at a national convention of the
Partnership 2000 program that will take place this week in Israel, in the
presence of chairmen of partnerships and subcommittees, volunteers and
activists from partnerships all over Israel.

During the convention, four partnerships will be presented with awards for
excellence on behalf of the Jewish Agency: The Great Britian and
Confrontation Line partnership for the 'Study the Galilee' program; The
Afula-Gilboa and the UJC Southern New England Consortium (SNEC)for their
Young Emissaries program - 'Shinshinim'; The Tel-Aviv and Los Angeles
partnership for the Twin Schools program; and the Western Galilee and UJC
Central Region Consortium partnership for a program training US medical
squads to handle emergency situations.

The convention will be held on Thursday 14.12, between 10:00-17:00 at Kfar
Maccabiah,Ramat Gan in the presence of the Chairman of the Jewish Agency,
Zeev Bielski and the Treasurer of the Jewish Agency, Hagai Meirom.
