Welcome our new Israeli 
Emissaries !
Welcome to Guy Shamai, Meshy Gabay,  who will be joining our Religious School in the fall as part of the Israeli Young Emissary program sponsored by the Federation for Jewish Philanthropy of Upper Fairfield County.   Now in its 18th year, the program's goal is to build a living bridge between Israel and our community. Guy and Meshy, are recent high school graduates who have chosen to postpone their army service to spend the year in Upper Fairfield County, working with our religious school as well as in our adult education programs, local high schools, day schools and Jewish Senior Services. 
This is a wonderful opportunity to add some cross-cultural enrichment to your family life.  Please reach out to these special young ambassadors.  Invite them to your home for a Shabbat dinner or to spend a day with your family going apple picking or to a baseball game.  Show them a bit about life in the United States and listen as they share their thoughts on life in Israel. Yet, this program is not just for the youth of our community. Invite them to one of your adult dinner parties, and let them share their observations about politics, culture and societal issues in Israel. This wonderful opportunity to build bridges is made possible through our Federation's relationship with the Jewish Agency for Israel. 

If you are interested in inviting any or all of the Shinshinim to have a meal with your family or just spend the day, please call contact Stacy Kamisar at skamisar@jewishphilanthropyct.org  or Judy Blumenthal at ctblumers@optonline.net
