WEBINAR: Hosting Shlichim

Description:

In order to bring Israel to camp, our shlichim need a place to sleep and live. While finding host families is the first obstacle, informing families on how to welcome the Israelis into the community and their homes is critical to the success of the shlichim program. This session is designed for families who are hosting shlichim this summer to discover strategies to welcome these guests into their homes and learn ways to have a meaningful experience for everyone. Camp directors are welcome to join the session as well.

Audience: camp directors and leadership, host families

Presenter: Shara Perlman, Assistant Director of Camping and Youth Engagement
