Join a GCSCI DelegationConnecting Columbus to the world
Join A Greater Columbus Sister City Delegation!
The United States and Israel have shared a long-standing relationship which was built on shared values and interests. In 1992, Columbus entered a sister city relationship with the city of Herzliya in an effort to build and strengthen existing connections.
In September 2020, Franklin County Commissioner Marilyn Brown will lead a delegation to Herzliya and surrounding cities to revitalize this relationship and focus on educational, technology, healthcare and cultural connections with the Greater Columbus Region. The delegation will begin in our Sister City of Herzliya but includes travel to Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv, Masada and the Dead Sea.
As a delegate of this program, you will be a representative of the Greater Columbus region and have exclusive access to local elected officials, businesses and cultural sites. Program fee includes round-tip airfare, hotel rooms, meals, interpretation, in-country support and admission to all cultural sites.
