Summer Speaker Series: What it Means for Me to be a Shlicha with Netta Asner-Minster, Congregational Shlicha

Saturday, August 22, 2020 2 Elul 5780

11:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Shlichut literally means “mission.” For many, the term refers to Israeli emissaries who spend a year or two in various communities or on college campuses. Shlichut in and of itself is a challenge: you must adapt to and learn about different communities and cultures. This past year, however, presented unprecedented challenges for us all, which compelled us to quickly adapt to new circumstances and find ways of being together while physically apart. In honor of the beginning of our shlicha's second year, Netta Asner-Minster will share her personal experiences of this past year, including the challenges and the successes in adapting to the circumstances by creating new and unique online opportunities.

Netta Asner-Minster is beginning her second year as our shlicha (Israeli Emissary). Netta was born in Silver Spring, Maryland and moved to Israel in 2004. She completed her BA prior to her Shlichut from Hebrew University in International Relations and Jewish History and Contemporary Judaism. Netta's passion is to engage with Israeli and American Jews, strengthening the ties between the communities, and has worked with various organizations such as Onward Israel, the Israeli Parliament, and of course the Jewish Agency to further promote this goal. She recently got married to John in December 2019.
