Infusing Israel into local Jewish life

The Jewish Federation sponsors extended visits by young Israeli emissaries, who work in synagogues, schools, and camps to bring Israeli life and culture alive for people of all ages. Shinshinim (post-high school) and Summer Shlichim (young adults) infuse Israel into local Jewish life, strengthening Jewish family ties and strengthening the foundation for a secure Jewish future.
