The ShinShinim are so proud to take part in this year’s Run with Israel. It is an incredible way to show support for the people of Israel and to feel a deeper connection to the land and its people.
In helping the ShinShinim reach the team’s fundraising goals, you are also helping to strengthen the people of Israel and making a statement that Israel’s existence is vital to Jews worldwide.
UJA's Israel Engagement ShinShinim are young Israeli leaders who defer their army service for one year to volunteer in the GTA. Each year, the ShinShinim are hosted by local Toronto families, and engage more than 3000 Jewish community members with cutting edge programs focusing on contemporary Israel. Toronto’s 24 ShinShinim are active in over 35 day schools, synagogues, supplementary schools, youth movements, community programs, and summer camps across Toronto, with increasing demand each and every year. The ShinShinim informally teach about Israel through creative programs and challenging discussions, bringing an authentic Israel experience to the Toronto Community. UJA Federation of Greater Toronto has the largest delegation of ShinShinim in the world – currently 24. UJA’s Israel Engagement ShinShinim are proud to be a part of the Run, and such an amazing community!
