Building Bridges Across Three Continents
As 2019 began, I found myself flying across the globe to partake in an adventure I had never thought possible. I was travelling to Japan as part of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) delegation to the Kakehashi Project, an innovative program sponsored by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs designed to foster understanding and cooperation between Japan and the United States. Our delegation was especially unique, as it consisted of young Jewish leaders with backgrounds in law, finance, education, and medicine. As such, we were also eager to learn about Japan’s relationship with Israel.
