How to be part of the Morim Shlichim Program?
If a school is interested in hiring an Israeli Educator, they should first fill out the ‘school request form’. Our staff will evaluate the needs of the applying institution and match them with the most suitable candidates who have passed through our screening process. Through the online portal, the school will be able to view these candidates’ CVs, browse additional candidates, and connect with potential teachers to set up interviews. Our team will facilitate any other necessary steps in the recruitment process.
If the school decides to hire one of the candidates, they must make an official job offer and present a contract. Once the candidate accepts the contract, the WZO will manage the visa application and we’ll provide the shaliach extensive training, after which they’ll be ready to begin their year in the school.

In two words: Consciousness and Credentials.
More broadly, Israeli Educators – morim shlichim – come with a strong sense of purpose, as if they are taking on a mission of utmost significance – the mission of Jewish Education and creating a connection to Israel. Additionally, they are steeped in Jewish and Israeli life. They are familiar with contemporary events, aware of the challenges of the current era, speak modern, up-to-date Hebrew, and are knowledgeable about Israeli cultural life. As educators, the emissary can form a bridge between Israel and the school community and has the ability to motivate students by example, knowledge, and passion.
At the same time, the Israeli educator is a professional teacher, certified and experienced, dedicated to the art of teaching. Ideally, the educator will be flexible and sociable, open to learning new ways of teaching, and attentive to criticism, in order to successfully master the cultural transition and fully integrate with the school staff.
