JCRC ShinShinims' First Month in Our Community

"Our First Month here as ShinShinim Israel Community Ambassadors was Amazing! Shalom, Everyone!”

For those of you reading this who have not yet met them, our new JCRC Shinshiniot, Lia & Ella, are here and are working in our Southern New Jersey community with our local synagogues including, Kol Ami, Temple Beth Sholom, Adath Emanuel and Beth El, with two Jewish Day Schools, Kellman Brown Academy and Politz, as well as with the Katz JCC, BBYO and Weinberg Commons. They are connecting with and mingling among members of our community daily, as they travel and they can't wait to meet everyone!

So far, they have been to Margate beach, and gotten to visit Philadelphia and NYC. In Philadelphia they went to a museum, ate ice cream and walked by the river. While in NYC they met with some Shinshinim friends from Westchester and also walked around Manhattan and Brooklyn eating authentic Brooklyn pizza for the first time! They have already started working in our Jewish day-schools and local synagogues and they enthusiastically said that everybody has given them a truly warm welcome! They say they can't wait to see what the rest of their year with all of us here in South Jersey will bring and we wholeheartedly agree! Kol HaKavod!
