Shaliach

Shalom,

My name is Ofer. Yes, I know, a name quite different what you are used to hearing in Palm Beach County! I arrived in the greater Palm Beaches in September 2011, sent by the Jewish Agency for Israel to bring a part of Israel to you.

We probably have already met — during a synagogue service, in religious school, or maybe a Jewish or Israeli community event. As the Shaliach & Israel Educator of Palm Beach County, I travel all around the community on a mission to bring Peoplehood to you! How, you may ask? By blending culture, history and tradition cooked well in a huge pot of humor, tears and loving hugs, that is served up on a plate of a long-term partnership with the Tzahar Region (comprising the cities of Tzfat, Hatzor Haglilit, and Rosh-Pina), in Israel’s north. This delicious dish is not political, but it is kosher, for sure!

On this page I invite you to read and comment on the issues I’ve written about that deal with Israel. Feel free to ask questions, follow the events and contact me personally regarding any topic involving the name of Israel.

Am Israel Chai!
