We are an empowering and supportive community of over 7000 young Russian-speaking soldiers, students and young professionals - most of whom moved to Israel without family. Our weekend retreats, excursions, professional mentoring and study evenings, cultural activities, volunteer, and holiday events are helping young Israeli immigrants thrive personally and professionally in their new home, in an atmosphere of community, pluralism, Jewish literacy and Jewish Peoplehood.
We are so happy for the engagement of Luba and Daniel, and the wedding of Lena and Shimon! Looking forward to sharing more joyful moments with our dear couples and growing Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli community!
May 9, 2019 - Gush Etzion
Until yesterday, I couldn’t figure out what inspiration was lacking in my life to fully celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut! Then I went on the excursion of the wonderful organization Shishi Shabbat Israeli, which allows olim to spend time with interesting people and learn a lot of new and important information about our native country. Thank you to Ilya and Lena and our guides for a day in infinitely beautiful places , to Linda and Zeev for opening your home and the delicious picnic, music, and activities, and for the positive emotions going wild as we traveled, which I haven’t felt for a long time. I have become so close to this country after almost 3 years – Happy birthday and long years of prosperity, my dear Israel!
May 5th, 2019 - Aminadav Forest Jerusalem
This was a special morning for our young olim couples with children. We hiked in the Jerusalem hills, and then enjoyed special activities for adults and children in Aminadav Forest, including a picnic, preparing dough and baking “matza” pitot, sharing Pesach stories and memories, and singing together.
Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli developed active branches with Area Coordinators in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beer Sheva and Haifa, in addition to our national programs.
