Premier Kathleen Wynne of Ontario, Canada led a mission to encourage new academic and professional alliances between Ontario and Israel. Several new partnerships were signed by Ontario universities and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, including an agreement to facilitate student exchange and practicum placement between the University of Toronto's Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and the Hebrew University's Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare. Under the agreement, full-time graduate students from each university will be eligible to study at the partner university and, in the case of University of Toronto students, also participate in experiential learning during their coursework in Israel.Pictured below, from left: Prof. Mimi Ajzenstadt, Dean of the Hebrew University's Paul Baerwald School of Social Work and Social Welfare; Prof. Oron Shagrir, Vice-Rector of the Hebrew University; and Judith Wolfson, Vice-President, International, Government and Institutional Relations for the University of Toronto.
