Reflecting on Israel's strong ties to Michigan during its 70th anniversary
As Israel approaches the 70th anniversary of its founding, the metro Detroit Jewish community is gearing up for a memorable celebration. The Michigan-Israel connection extends to many dimensions of our society – including college campuses. Last year, the Cohn-Haddow Center for Judaic Studies at Wayne State University sent a group of 16 Wayne State students to Israel as part of a new program, “Engaging Israeli Technology.”
During their 12-day tour, the students - most of whom were science majors visiting Israel for the first time – met with tech companies in Israel involved in a variety of fields, including agriculture, medicine, security, and the environment. This diverse group included students of all backgrounds including Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
