  • Help us welcome our 2016/17 Israeli Young Emissaries!

    Now in its 18th year, the Israeli Young Emissary Program builds a living bridge between Upper Fairfield County and Afula-Gilboa, our sister region in Israel. Meet Meshy, Guy, Noa and Rotem - recent high-school graduates who have chosen to postpone their Israeli military service to spend the year in our community bringing Israel to our preschools and religious schools, adult-education programs, local high schools and dayschools, and Jewish Senior Services.
