Rebecca Hornstein (South Senior High School) and Ethan Buckner (Hopkins High School) are two Minneapolis High School graduates who are spending a year in Israel within the framework of the Masa Israel Journey project of the Jewish Agency and Government of Israel.
They met with Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty who is leading a trade delegation from Minnesota to Israel this week. The Minneapolis teens were invited by Israeli philanthropist Raya Strauss, who chairs the Jewish Agency`s Partnership 2000 committee to a dinner at the Ilana Goor Museum in Old Jaffa in honor of 126 participants, including those from the Minnesota and Georgia Trade Delegations, who attended the Jewish Agency`s Business to Business Initiative at this week's Globes Israel Business Conference.
