Over the course of November, OTS Amiel BaKehila will be sending no fewer than seven delegations to Latin America. Alongside the talented Jewish educators traveling to each community, hi-tech expert Daniel Ben Shimon will visit the communities of Parana, Santa Fe and Rosario, Argentina; former Mossad agent Dani Limor will speak in Montevideo, San Juan and Bahia Blanca; and journalist Jana Beris will speak in Cordoba, Salta and Tucuman.
In the United Kingdom, Ethiopian activist Penina Redai will join Chef Yahav Kriti and Rabbi Reuven Spolter, while the communities of the Marseilles region in France welcome Marc Amouyal and technology and investment expert Bruno Malki. OTS Amiel BaKehila will also be sending its inaugural delegation to Spain, as Rav Aharon Gulman accompanies hasbarah expert Gustavo Perednick and musician Ianir Kilinsky to Tormolinos, Barcelon and Palma de Majorca.
Resilience expert Miriam Shapira and actor Assi Tzobel will travel alongside delegation leader Rabbi Chaim Kanterovitz to Providence, Rhode Island; Columbus, Ohio; and Kansas City, Missouri; while photographer and writer Laura Ben David joins Rabbi Aaron Goldscheider as they visit San Antonio, Texas; Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Long Branch, New Jersey.
“All in all,” says program director Rabbi Reuven Spolter, “it will be a very busy and rewarding month as the OTS Amiel BaKehila delegations share the depth of Judaism, the wonder of modern Israel, and the beauty of Jewish art in its myriad forms.”
