They may be thousands of miles apart, but they're sister cities now. Jersey City Mayor Steven M. Fulop and the Mayor of Beit Shemesh, Israel, Dr. Aliza Bloch, recently signed a sister city agreement that has been in development these past few months. Initiated by the New Jersey-Israel Commission, the agreement is meant to improve the resources of each city by optimizing their shared industries, streamlining immigration and integration, leading urban revitalization in the face of rapid population growth, and codifying shared workforce development strategies.
