ISRAEL EMISSARY/COMMUNITY SHLICHA
A shlicha is an emissary, sent to Delaware through a partnership of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Jewish Federation, strengthening our community’s connection to Israel and the Israeli people. The shlicha provides educational programming for the entire Jewish community and also serves as an advocate for Israel within both the Jewish and broader community.
We welcomed a new Shlicha to Delaware in August, 2018, Daniella Buchshtaber, who will continue building a living bridge with Israel. In addition, Federation is also partially funding an Israel Fellow position of University of Delaware Hillel as part of our Shlichut Program and bringing a young couple into the community for enhanced engagement.
