Israeli Young Emissaries go to camp!

At the end of August, Connecticut opened its arms to embrace the state’s newly arrived 2018 Israeli Young Emissaries. Before they fanned out throughout the state to begin work strengthening the living bridge between Israel and the communities to which they have been assigned, the teens from Israel’s Afula-Gilboa region who have delayed their military service to perform a year of outreach, were treated to a day of fun and orientation at the beautiful and bucolic Camp Laurelwood in Madison. There they had the opportunity to meet the heads of Connecticut and Massachusetts Federations and other Jewish community leaders.

Pictured above at Camp Laurelwood are the Young Emissaries, together with Connecticut Federation heads and other Jewish community leaders.
