Community Shlichim

Community Shlichim are guided by local leadership to engage all age groups within their host communities in a range of Jewish and Israel activities.

The Jewish Agency's Community Shlichim Program sends idealistic and dedicated Israelis to serve in Jewish communities and with Jewish organizations throughout the world.

The shlichim remain in their communities for one to two years, during which time they become partners with their host communities and work to engage all age groups - especially teens and young adults - in a range of Jewish cultural, educational, and social activities.

Guided locally by the community leadership, the Community Shlichim plant the seeds of a secure Jewish future by implementing programs that are designed to increase Jewish awareness, knowledge, and pride; and to promote an understanding of Israel and its ideals.
