Israel Symbol

Political Influence

All Sephardic communities around the world are represented in Israel by Shas Olami. Through the Council of Torah Sages, we enable community rabbis to develop an active relationship with the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, including facilitating direct connections with the Chief Rabbis regarding important halachic questions. We also provide assistance with burial in Israel.

Through its political connections, Shas Olami facilitates direct contact with Members of Knesset and government offices in Israel. Through our international Sephardic community network – the World Union of Sephardic Communities – we can help diaspora communities in their dealings with their own governments on important community issues.
