For the people of Fairfield County, Federation is at the forefront of celebrating, advocating, and building meaningful relationships with people in Israel and around the world. When Jewish communities are threatened, in Israel or anywhere around the globe, we are prepared to immediately come to their aid.
Amid rising antisemitism, Jews around the world know they can rely on the unwavering support of their suporters in Stamford, New Canaan, and Darien. Because no matter where we live, we’re all part of one global Jewish family.
Here are just some of the ways that Federation helps bring Israel to Fairfield County, and Fairfield country to the world:
Community Shaliach (Israeli Emissary)
A shaliach is an emissary, brought to our community by Federation and a partnership with the Jewish Agency for Israel and Federation's Israel and Overseas Committee, to strengthen our Fairfield County’s connection to Israel and the Israeli people. The shaliach provides educational programming that speaks to the entire Jewish community and serves as an advocate for Israel within both the Jewish and broader community.
Our new Shaliach, Yoav Yaron, will arrive mid-August, 2022. He can’t wait to get started!
