The author explains that Partnership 2000 (P2K) is a program aimed at pairing Diaspora Jewish communities with 27 regions throughout Israel. Its purpose is to link Israelis and Diaspora Jews in various collaborative efforts. She writes that P2K is intended to address the material and spiritual concerns of both Diaspora and Israeli communities through a process of joint governance. The author traces the development of P2K and explores its " people-to-people" programming efforts. This study also examines how P2K differs from Project Renewal, the nature of Israeli participation in P2K, the role of the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) in P2K, and a look towards the future, among other topics.
