WATCH: Sister towns of Eli and Great Neck celebrate alliance

The mayors of Eli in the West Bank, and Great Neck on Long Island, New York, join us in the studio to discuss cultivating ties between the towns and widening the network to include more municipalities. 

“I believe that the United States is actually coming to Israel, our president is here, meeting the prime minister, and that is more regional but I think we should do it more locally. We have taken two villages, two towns, in a way to bring us together,” Pedram Eliyahu Bral, mayor of Great Neck, Long Island, told i24NEWS.
