For the first time in its history, Israel will invest in Zionist education abroad. The decision was taken Monday at meetings of the Jewish Agency for Israel’s board of governors involving representatives of the agency, the Israeli government and Jewish communities around the world. The projects, which will be managed by Israel and the Jewish Agency, are intended to “counter the worrisome trend of assimilation” of young Jews abroad and “connect them to Israel and to the idea of aliyah.”
