Tell us about the community you’re in:
The community consists of about 300 families of South American descent, mainly from Venezuela. We work with all age groups and around the entire annual holiday and life cycles. The role is very challenging and also very satisfying.
What did you receive from the Straus-Amiel Educational Emissary Training Progam and the Claudia Cohen Women Educator Institute?
The institutes provided us with excellent preparation and training for the roles we are playing today. In addition, we are grateful for the ongoing support over the years, and the halakhic and communal advice.
What message would you like to impart regarding shlichut?
We feel a deep sense of shlichut, of mission, toward the Jewish people across the Diaspora.
