Past Shlichim

Our connection to Israel

The Shlichim has been a powerful connection to Israel for the Milwaukee community. They have helped us be closer to Israel for over 40 years. Not only is this webpage a tribute to the past shlichim and their work, it is also a friendly communication tool to the Milwaukee community concerning the livelihood of our Israeli emissary friends. The legacy of the MJF Shlichut Program has been possible in great part because of our partner agency, Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), which works to connects Jews with Israel, with one another, with their heritage and with our collective future.

If you have updates about any of the past shlichim listed, please contact IsraelCenter@MilwaukeeJewish.org or call 414-390-5764.
