The Jewish Agency for Israel partners with communities and institutions across North America on widening and deepening the engagement with Israel, in particular for young Jews. Our Shlichim or Israeli educators are at the center of our mission. Working in a wide variety of educational and communal settings, these shlichim provide a living bridge to Israel, engage thousands of young Jews with Israeli life and society and provide a critical resource for Israel education, engagement and advocacy. There are over 300 Shlichim in North America, working on University campuses, at Federations, in schools and Jewish Community Centers, in synagogues and with youth movements. To meet these Shlichim, to learn about their work, and to see which shlichim work near you, click on shlichim profiles.
