Shlicha Dafi Duck is Coming to Camp

Summer Camp at the JCC is always lots of fun and there are plenty of opportunities for children to learn without even realizing that they are doing so. This summer, campers will be learning about Israel through songs, games and activities with the camp’s resident Shlicha, Dafna Chen.

Chen, 21, who likes to go by the nickname Dafi Duck, is from Kibbutz Tel Katzir in Israel’s Jordan Valley. She has experience working with young children in a day care center, and has about four years experience working with special needs children. She has also been a chocolate workshop instructor for the Galita Chocolate Farm.

Born and raised on a kibbutz, she loves to sing and make art, learn about new cultures and get together with new people.

As with last year’s successful shlicha, Chen will be staying with host families while she is in Louisville. Additional host families are needed. For more information about serving as a host family, please contact Rachel Lipkin, 238-2701 or

Watch for a full interview in Community when she arrives in Louisville.
