Community Shaliach

Shlichim Program for Omaha

The Jewish Federation of Omaha participates with the Jewish Agency for Israel Community Shlichim program to welcome enthusiastic young emissaries from Israel to our community. The Shlichim Program provides meaningful connections designed to increase Jewish awareness, knowledge, and pride; and to promote an understanding of Israel and its ideals.


The Shlichim Program is coordinated through the Western Galilee Partnership2Gether consortium. Over the past 20 years, The Jewish Agency for Israel and the Jewish Federations of North America have used this program to creating meaningful relationships between global Jewish communities and communities in Israel. Currently, it is a central platform for the development of deep connections among Jewish communities across the globe.


Current Shlichah: Mika Mizrahi
