South Jersey's ShinShinim don’t just join our community, they become part of our family.

Consider enriching your family life by hosting one of our ShinShinim in your home. Hosting has proved to be a wonderful arrangement, benefiting the emissary, the host family, and our local community.


There are several opportunities to host each year with one of the ShinShinim staying with you and your family for 3 month intervals.


Interested in becoming a host family for 2024-2025????

Here are some of the families who have already made the ShinShin experience a part of their lives:
