A delegation of 120 shlichim (Israeli emissaries) representing the Jewish Agency for Israel attended the 2019 American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference from March 24 to 26 in Washington, D.C. More than 2,000 Jewish Agency shlichim go to diaspora communities in 150 countries to strengthen Jewish identity by bringing a taste of Israel to them, promoting Israel experiences, and facilitating Jewish social activism. This group includes the college campus efforts of the Jewish Agency Israel Fellows, who serve for one to three years at colleges and and universities worldwide, with the goal of empowering student leadership and creating Israel-engaged campuses. During this sensitive time for Jewish unity, Shlichim represent a crucial bridge between American and Israeli Jews.

The emissaries’ attendance of the AIPAC conference — the largest annual gathering for supporters of the U.S.-Israel relationship — was their latest step to advance that mission.
