Jewish Federation of Greater Houston works to connect our community to Israel. We accomplish this by fostering relationships among community organizations, coordinating with existing Israel programs and events and providing direct educational resources to the entire community.
Shlichim (Hebrew for Emissary) provide a living connection to Israel by promoting Israeli experiences, facilitating Jewish social activism, and speaking authentically about faith and culture.
Shlichim programming keeps our community connected to Israel.
Teen Israel Ambassadors
The Teen Israel Ambassadors program is a two-year initiative for select 11th & 12th grade high school students. It empowers students to respond to the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic challenges they may face on college campuses.
Through a series of sessions, students gain greater knowledge of Israel/Jewish history and current events and advocacy skills. Students learn from and work with local and national educators and organizations as well as with outside experts.
