Young Israeli Emissaries to the Diaspora

 BRINGING ISRAEL TO REMOTE COMMUNITIES

​WHY THE YOUNG ISRAELI EMISSARIES PROGRAM?

Recent years have witnessed worldwide demonization of the State of Israel and the criminalization of its very existence. University campuses in particular have become breeding grounds for virulent anti-Israel activism. At the same time, most Jewish children in the Diaspora receive minimal, if any, Jewish education, resulting in a growing gap between world Jewish communities and Israel.  

WHAT IS THE YOUNG ISRAELI EMISSARIES PROGRAM?

It is a program run by the Jewish Agency, which sends a cadre of young Israelis to Diaspora communities and university campuses as a way to strengthen Jews’ connection to Israel and to counter rising anti-Israel sentiment. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • After a highly selective screening process, dozens of post-army Israelis are chosen to serve as emissaries abroad, many in isolated areas with tiny Jewish populations   
  • They undergo special training to become acquainted with Jewish life abroad and to learn how to combat attacks on Israel 
  • They work  in formal and informal educational frameworks, in close coordination with the local community, running cultural, educational and social activities
  • Others serve on university campuses, where they combat anti-Israel propaganda and make the case for Israel

WHAT MAKES THE YOUNG ISRAELI EMISSARIES PROGRAM UNIQUE?

  • It creates a personal bond between Israelis and Diaspora Jews, enhancing their connection to Jewish tradition and instilling a love for Israel
  • It targets university campuses, many of which are hotbeds of anti-Israel activism

WHOM DOES IT HELP?

  • Jewish communities in dozens of locations abroad
  • Young Jews on hundreds of college campuses
  • The State of Israel
