Shlichut is an outreach program that brings shlichim (cultural emissaries) from Israel to live and work in Howard County. The shaliach works on behalf of 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 shaliach promotes increased connections and greater understanding of Israel and our Jewish heritage. The shaliach 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.
The Shlichut program is in collaboration with our partner agency, The Jewish Agency for Israel.
