Jewish Woman Elected Mayor of Mexico City
MEXICO CITY ON July 1 elected its first female mayor — and
she’s Jewish as well, according to Haaretz.
Scientist Claudia Sheinbaum, 56, who represented the
National Regeneration (Morena) Party, received more than 48
percent of the vote.
Of the seven candidates for mayor, five were women.
Mexico City has about 9 million residents, including about
45,000 Jews, according to The Jewish Chronicle.
Sheinbaum is the granddaughter of Jewish immigrants from
Lithuania and Bulgaria. She earned a doctorate in energy engi-
neering at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. l

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia
mobilizes financial and volunteer resources to
address the communities’ most critical priorities
locally, in Israel and around the world.
Jewish Federation Completes Emotional and
Memorable Israel360 VIP Mission
The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, together with Jewish Federations
of North America’s National Young Leadership, embarked on the annual, week-
long Israel360 VIP mission with 21 dedicated and motivated members of Greater
Philadelphia’s Jewish community. The July 2 to July 8 trip brought the group through-
out Israel to Tel Aviv, the Golan Heights, Masada, the Dead Sea and Jerusalem. The
group visited several of the organizations and programs that Jewish Federation
supports and viewed the many religious, historical and cultural icons that shape the
state of Israel. The trip culminated with a visit to Netivot, Jewish Federation’s part-
ner region that borders the Gaza Strip and is subject to regular attack. While there,
the group participated in a security tour of Sdot Negev, had lunch with members of
Kibbutz Alumim, enjoyed an introduction to the Kaiserman Ethiopian spiritual cen-
ter and visited Netivot’s replica of the Liberty Bell.

Participants learn from members of Kibbutz Alumim about day-to-day life and the harsh
realities and decisions kibbutz families deal with living in close proximity to the Gaza border.
