Connect. Support. Engage.
Each year the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) sends over 1,000 Israeli emissaries (schlichim) to live and work in communities like ours, to assist in the strengthening of local Jewish identity and our connection to Israel. They provide a living bridge to Israel by promoting Israeli experiences, facilitating Jewish social activism and speaking authentically about faith and culture.
Federation’s Israel & Overseas department is proud to work with JAFI to bring our current resident Shaliach Yiftach Leket to our community. We can’t wait for you to meet and work with him to help forge a more meaningful bond between Israel and Jewish Detroit.
