Jewish Agency Summer Camp Shlichim Gear Up for Another Impactful Season
Jerusalem, March 26, 2023 — The Jewish Agency for Israel’s Summer Camp Shlichim(Israeli emissaries) are gearing up for another impactful season at summer camps across North America. Jewish Agency Chairman of the Executive Doron Almog was on hand to kick off training for the almost 1,500 Shlichim, which began last Thursday, March 23. The Jewish Agency sends young Israelis, ages 20-21, to work at summer camps where they impart their experience and skills, creating lasting bonds with campers and forging connections to Israel.
“Jewish Agency Summer Camp Shlichim bring the spirit of Israel to dozens of camps throughout North America, creating a special bond with campers and a connection to Israel. These Shlichim return to Israel with a deeper appreciation of North American Jewry and a sense of Jewish peoplehood, making this a wonderful way to strengthen the ties between our next generation,” said Almog.
