Host a Rishon and Bring Israel Home!

We are looking for warm, loving families to serve as hosts. This is a wonderful opportunity for families with children to create a lasting connection with a young Israeli!

Who are the Rishonim?
Each year, Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ welcomes a group of young emissaries from our partnership communities in Israel. Rishonim are talented young adults who are embarking on a gap year between high school graduation and their mandatory IDF or national service. They volunteer throughout our community in schools, synagogues, and JCCs, bringing their spirit, knowledge, and love of Israel to our community. Take advantage of this unique and meaningful opportunity, and make a Rishon part of your Jewish family!
