OTS Congratulates graduates of the Beren-Amiel Educator Emissary Training Program, the Straus-Amiel Rabbinical Emissary Training Program, and the Claudia Cohen Women Educators Institute who are embarking upon new positions of shlichut this summer. 

In a festive ceremony at the Israeli Knesset, 45 graduates of OTS emissary-training programs received bon voyage blessings from Education Minister Naftali Bennett, Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben Dahan and Director General of the Diaspora Affairs Ministry, Dvir Kahana. These dynamic, dedicated men and women join hundreds of OTS families already impacting on pulpits, campuses, schools and individuals in six of the world’s seven continents.
