The Rav Siach program is an initiative of the Masorti Movement to strengthen the relationship between Masorti congregations in Israel and Jewish congregations around the world. The aim of this initiative is to create a conversation between the two communities on the key issues confronting Israeli society and Jewish communities. Rav Siach strives to develop, through the exchanging of ideas, a partnership which can transform individuals and communities, moving away from the previous notion of one-sided support that framed Israeli/Diaspora relationships for more than half a century.
With the support of the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, the program is largely centered on sending educators and rabbis from the Movement in Israel to North America and Europe for teaching engagements in Jewish congregations. In addition, the program provides educational resources and content related to Israel and assists congregations visiting Israel to include a meaningful encounter with their fellow Israelis as part of their Israel trip.
