Volunteers from Cincinnati’s Jewish community work hard to make visiting Israeli guests feel at home. We connect visiting Israelis with local families and Jewish community organizations that can help acquaint them with community schools, synagogues and neighborhoods and host them for Shabbat dinners and holiday events.

• Nearly 27,000 Jews live in Cincinnati.
