Shinshinim Host Family Interest Form
Dear Prospective Host Family,
We are so grateful that you have decided to consider hosting a Shinshin (Israeli Young Emissary) in your home. Hosting has proved to be a wonderful experience for more than 20 years; benefiting the Shinshin, the host family, and our local Jewish community.
Below are some guidelines about hosting for you to review and consider; as well as, the Host Family Application. Once it is complete and submitted we will call to make arrangements to meet in person to further discuss the program and the role of the host family.
Throughout the application there will be questions related to Jewish home observances, language, pets, allergies, etc. Know that there are no "right" or "wrong" answers. We are looking for ALL types of homes.
We plan for each Shinshin to stay at two host families throughout the year. Please be aware that - in order to ensure the best placements on all sides - we can not guarantee which Shinshin you will host.
Please feel free to call Amy Fox with any questions: 404-862-0860.
