Israel is a fascinating contrast between the ancient and the modern and is the spiritual and physical center of the Jewish people. As we celebrate its rich history, traditions and deep dimension, we are thrilled to work with our Community Shlicha, who will help us explore and discover what makes Israel so special! Our Shlicha will reach deeper within our community to educate and increase awareness, knowledge and pride about Israel’s history, culture and current events, and to promote a better understanding of Israel and its ideals. The program also serves as a catalyst for igniting Jewish journeys, encouraging people to learn more about Judaism and Israel, and finding their own way to connect to the Jewish homeland.
