Hadar in the Community



​Shlichut is an outreach program that brings shlichim (cultural emissaries) from Israel to live and work in Howard County. The shlicha works with the Federation, as well as with synagogues, preschools, religious schools, youth groups and other organizations, to create and promote Israel-related activities in Howard County.


Through a variety of events, the shlicha promotes increased connections and greater understanding of Israel and our Jewish heritage. The Shlicha is charged with promoting a positive image of Israel, as well as infusing Israeli culture, history, politics and society into Howard County's community, both Jewish and non-Jewish.
