The Maarava Program

The Touito family departs on shlichut to GuatemalaThe Maarava Program is a specially-designed, additional component of the Straus-Amiel Program geared specifically toward rabbis who are planning to carry out emissary work in one of the world’s Sephardic communities.

Over and above the Straus-Amiel curriculum, Maarava participants devote one afternoon a week to studying the history of Sephardic Jewry and the unique development of Sephardic halakha, while also examining the particular issues facing Sephardic communities today. 

Focus is also placed on practical ways in which to encourage Jews who are strong in their Jewish and Sephardic identity, but who live secular lives in the modern world, to strengthen and maximize their connection to Sephardic halacha and traditions.
