San Diego's Cultural Connection to Israel | Union Tribune

Sha'ar HaNegev is a largely rural enclave of 6,000 residents in Israel that is near the border of the densely populated Gaza Strip.
On Sunday, January 26, the San Diego Union Tribune published a multi-spread article titled "Cultural Connections", which highlights the history of San Diego's longstanding, dynamic, strategic, and meaningful relationship with San Diego's sister region in Israel--Sha'ar HaNegev.

The article takes an in-depth look into the perspectives of several San Diegans who are actively involved in the local Jewish community and feel a strong personal connection to Israel, and in particular, Sha'ar HaNegev. The article also sheds light on the viewpoints of Sha'ar HaNegev residents and leaders who similarly feel a strong connection to the San Diego Jewish community.
