Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan renewed the twin city alliance with New York’s Hempstead municipality.
Bruce Blakeman, of the Hempstead City Council, is very close to the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. He is also a staunch supporter of Israel.
Both Blakeman and Dagan’s goal in the creation of “twin schools” is to promote joint activities for the schools of Samaria Council and New York City.
“We believe this will be another joint activity of cooperation and understanding between our students that are the future of both countries,” Blakeman said.
