Israeli Shlichim (Emissaries)
Our JCC Summer Camps team includes staff from Israel, known as shlichim (emissaries). These young and talented individuals are chosen for their experience, leadership qualities, and will be here for the summer, serving our camp and community. They are working with our staff, children and community to bring Israel a little closer to us all.
