Israel in your community

Israel in Your Community

The Jewish Agency strengthens Jewish identity by bringing Israel to you by means of local Partnerships and shlichim (emissaries). Building meaningful connections between Israeli and global Jewish communities bolsters Jewish inclusiveness and unity. Our shlichim and local educators don't just teach Israel, we are Israel!
