About the Sister City Program of Cocoa, Florida and Beit Shemesh, Israel (Sistercityprogram.org): In October 2007, the City of Cocoa adopted a sister city in Israel called Beit Shemesh, a city of 100,000 nestled in the hills near Jerusalem, following years of informal cultural exchanges between retired pastor Ron Shelton and others with Beit Shemesh residents. The Sister City Program, founded by President Dwight Eisenhower, is designed to create greater cultural knowledge.
