The Educational Mission of the Shaliach: A Case Study in Australia
Aharonov, Yosef
Journal of Jewish Education, v81 n2 p189-211 2015
Since the establishment of the State of Israel, the Shaliach has embodied at least one aspect of the tangible expression of the symbiotic relationship between Israel and its Diasporas. This article discusses the educational Shaliach sent from Israel to the Jewish Diaspora in Australia, and is based on a research study carried out between 2006 and 2009 using a qualitative methodology. Through in-depth interviews with 20 Shlichim, their experience was examined before departure, during their mission in Australia, and after their return back to Israel. This article focuses on one aspect that was examined: the educational message of the Shlichim and the clarity of their mission within the local Jewish community.
