Community contacts are residents of the communities who, on their own time, speak to people about their community. These volunteers speak to Olim to help them get a better understanding of what makes their community special and figure out if it is the right fit for them.

Anglo Oleh Coordinator is a paid position through the municipality. These individuals work to help you learn more about the community they represent, and what amenities may be available locally for Olim.
