Welcome to the first of what I hope will be many blog entries for the Engliyada Winter mission.  You may be asking yourself, “Self, what is Engliyada?”

Engliyada is a program where Clevelanders volunteer to teach conversational English in Beit Shean.  In an interactive environment, learning takes place while personal connections are easily formed. Engliyada is intended to supplement opportunities for Israelis to learn and improve English proficiency, and enhances the relationship between Israeli and Diaspora Jews.

Meeting with our Beit Shean Partners via Skype

Ten very enthusiastic Clevelanders participated in several educational sessions to prepare themselves for an Israeli classroom.  Their time included meeting Beit Sheani counterparts via Skype.

Over the coming days we look forward to sharing stories from the classrooms and our adventures in the Beit Shean region.
