Shlichim + Shinshinim

SHLICHIM + SHINSHINIM

Israel comes to life in your own backyard! Shinshinim are Israeli emissaries who spend the year as part of RCFI with the goal of bringing Israel and Israeli culture to Long Island and Queens. Over 30 day schools, synagogues, and JCC’s have elected to bring our Shinshinim to their community in order to provide informal programming to build Jewish identity and educate about the Jewish homeland. To learn how you can get your community involved, contact Gili Dvash, 516.484.1545 ext. 115, gdvash@sjjcc.org.

“Coming to the United States and being at the JCC has exposed me to all different types of people and how they connect with Israel. By being here, I bring Israel to the community. Now, when they visit Israel, they will always have a friendly face to visit.”  – Tomer K., former Shinshinim
