The Jewish Agency for Israel and Israeli Scouts


The Jewish Agency for Israel connects the global Jewish family, bringing Jews to Israel, and Israel to Jews. We provide Israel engagement opportunities, platforms for Israelis and their diaspora peers to form bonds, and Aliyah services. Our Service Year Shlichim (emissaries) and Senior Shlichim bring Israel into every corner of the UK; they are involved in every aspect of Jewish and Israeli communal life, promoting Israel experiences and leading Jewish and Zionist education.


In partnership with the Israeli Scouts (Tzofim), The Jewish Agency operates a unique programme called the “komuna”, made up of 9 Israeli teenagers in the UK for their community “service year” before the army. They volunteer in Jewish youth movements, organizations, schools and more.

Our partner, the Israeli Scouts, is the largest Zionist youth movement in Israel, and runs 2 main projects in the UK:

  • Tzofim Chapters: weekly youth activities for Hebrew speakers, in an Israeli environment
  • Garin Tzabar: an Aliyah program that helps lone immigrant IDF soldiers integrate into the military and Israeli society
