Small Communities Across Canada
Canada has a vibrant Jewish community that whole heartedly embraces the support and love of Israel. Toronto and Montreal, with the largest Jewish populations have a wealth of Israel engagement programs. The Canadian Zionist Federation recognized that smaller communities outside these centres were lacking in Zionist education activities.
Therefore CZF is focussing its efforts on working with the leaders of medium and small Jewish populations to bring them some of the excellent programs from the World Zionist Organization. Local educators and volunteers are trained as facilitators so that Israel engagement can become a strong part of their community.
In addition, twice a year, the Ivy Shlichut Program brings young Israelis to small communities as teachers and program leaders for a two month period. The program runs in March/April or September/October.
