The three partners spent two years engaging over 120 Jewish teens, families and volunteers.
Aside from Israel and North America, there were JCCs from the former Soviet Union, Latin America, Europe and the Far East.
JCC Global supervises the projects, checking in with respective JCCs throughout the year.
Now back home in Buenos Aires, Ariela Lijavetzky reflected on her time spent in Tarrytown.
She said she looks forward to presenting the project Found You to the more than 5,000 members of her JCC, OHA Macabi.
