For the past 9 years, we have been fortunate at Holy Blossom Temple to host two wonderful Israeli Shinshinim, Israeli teens who join us for the academic year as emissaries of Israel. These teens work with us and with Leo Baeck Day School to bring Israel alive to our students, along with their extended families.
In our 10th year in the program we will welcome Gil Peled (male), and Noga Ben-Tzvi (female) in just a few short months – August 2016. We are still looking for wonderful families to host them in homes – for a 3-4 month stint. These young Israelis bring so much to your family life – they are fun, interesting and offer a unique opportunity to any family.
If you are interested in welcoming one of these beautiful young people to your home, please contact Debbie Spiegel, [email protected]. Gillian Helfield is our lay leader in charge of the Shinshinim and will follow up with you.
Thanks- todah rabah!
