The city of Tallahassee issued the following news release:

Mayor John Marks will formalize the City of Tallahassee's newest official sister city relationship with Mayor Itzhak Rochberger of the City of Ramat-Hasharon, Israel on Friday, March

17, at 1:30 p.m. The two Mayors will sign a formal agreement as part of a ceremony taking place in the City Commission Chambers on the second floor of City Hall. A reception will follow on the second floor mezzanine of City Hall. City Commissioner Allan Katz will also be present at the event.

Mayor Rochberger is a native of Ramat-Hasharon, and was elected to a five-year term in 2003. At Friday's ceremony, he will be joined by Mr. David Menashe, deputy city director of international relations for Ramat-Hasharon, and Mr. Eli Hadar, a businessman in the Israeli city and leader of the movement to establish the relationship with Tallahassee.

Ramat-Hasharon joins Sligo, Ireland and the Caribbean island of St. Maarten in having formal sister city agreements with Tallahassee. The City Commission approved the formation of the relationship with Ramat-Hasharon on January 25, and the Tallahassee Jewish Federation worked with their Israeli counterparts to bring the delegation to Tallahassee for the formal signing ceremony.
