In Retrospect

By Irving Bernstein

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), April 1996

One of the most successful models of effective Israel-Diaspora cooperation in recent years has been Project Renewal -- the hands-on involvement of world Jewry in upgrading the quality of life in disadvantaged communities and neighborhoods in Israel. In this article, the last of three articles discussing the project, Irving Bernstein, then Executive Vice-President of the United Jewish Appeal, provides an American perspective on the story. He describes the difficult beginnings of the project, Yigael Yadin's leadership, and how the project eventually became a success story.
