Welcome to our Israeli Shinshinim (Ambassadors)


We welcome our Israeli shlichim, Yarden Vilchik and Noy Schwartz, who deferred their army service for one year to immerse themselves in the Baltimore Jewish community. The Shinshinim program is developed and facilitated by the Jewish Agency for Israel, through which they receive extensive training. Yarden and Noy will be part of the KSDS community through January and will spend Mondays and Wednesdays working with both Lower School and Middle School students. They will work in classrooms, run a Rak Ivrit (only Hebrew) table for our students during lunch and they will coordinate Israeli programming for all ages as they infuse our school with the spirit of Israel.
