Shlichim Program

Miki PlotkinMeet Miki Plotkin, our Shaliach. Read Miki's Bio

Our Israeli Shlichim work to expand education, understanding and engagement with Israel throughout the Houston Jewish and greater community. They work with all ages, but primarily with high school students in area synagogues, schools, youth movements and other Jewish organizations through classes programs and events. Read articles written by our Shlichim.  

This international program is designed to engage communities to be actively involved in becoming closer to their Jewish identity through Israel. Each Shaliach, (the Hebrew word for "Emissary”), is challenged to create programs tailor-made for specific needs of the community in which they reside.  

The program is designed to increase Jewish awareness, knowledge and pride; to bridge the gap between Jews of different backgrounds and Israel; and to promote an understanding of Israel and its ideals.
