UJA wanted to know if the ShinShinim - post-high school emissaries from Israel who volunteer in our community for one year – make a positive impact on the families who sign on to host these energetic young Israelis.
So we conducted a survey in June 2019 and the answer, in a word, is a resounding YES!
“Our experience hosting a ShinShin a few years ago helped my family feel more connected to Israel and more involved with UJA. I urge everyone in our community to get to know our ShinShinim, and strongly recommend the hosting program to everyone.”
