Hillel International is proud to partner with the Jewish Agency For Israel (JAFI) and the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) to coordinate the visits of 30 returning shlichim (emissaries) to campuses across North America.
Following the difficult events of the summer and anticipating an increased level of anti-Israel on some campuses, Hillel is working to provide additional resources and opportunities to support campus communities in shaping a positive, pro-Israel climate.
The visiting shlichim are Jewish Agency (JAFI) Israel Fellows who previously served on US campuses but have since returned to Israel. They are now taking time out of their work, studies and family lives in Israel to join campuses facing challenges in order to provide an additional layer of support to the pro-Israel campus community.
The visiting schlichim have received intense training from the Israel on Campus Coalition (ICC), the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), MAKOM, a JAFI educational initiative, and the JAFI Israel Fellows professional team.
This initiative is funded through JFNA emergency funds.
