Community Shlichut Program
The Volunteer Shlichut program, created by the Jewish Agency for Israel, is committed to strengthening Jewish identity and creating a connection between Diaspora Jewry and the State of Israel. The JCC Israeli shlicha (emissary) works directly within the community, with children, students and adults, to impart Jewish heritage and Zionism, to encourage members of the community to visit Israel, to provide the community with a taste of Israel, to organize a wide range of educational activities based on the Jewish calendar cycle, and to represent Israel before the general public.
