|CANTON’S SHLICHUT PROGRAM
Our current shlichim (Israeli emissaries), Gili and Uri Hershkovitz arrived in August 2017. This is a dynamic program, and each of our shlichim have been full of energy and enthusiasm and have brought their own personal charm to our community.
The shlichut program specializes in working with our youth, with local public schools to teach Israel, Holocaust education and Jewish history, as well as planning many special events and programs throughout the year.
