Our Perspectives

Celebrating Israel in Our Day Schools

Israeli emissaries are brought to our local day schools, synagogues, and teen youth groups to share Israeli life and culture. As a result, young people are learning more about Israel, Israelis, and the Hebrew language. Each year with the Federation’s help, hundreds of young people participate in Israel programs locally and in Israel.

Combating BDS and Hatred

Young leaders are becoming an effective voice in the fight against the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Israel Advocacy Fellows, a Community Relations Committee (CRC) program, invites young adult professionals to explore the complexities of Israel.

Advocating with Our Community Partners

Our Community Relations Committee (CRC) develops and sustains relationships with diverse ethnic and religious groups to effect change on issues of broader concerns, such as advocating for bail reform with the NAACP, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry, Hispanic Alliance, NCJW, ADL, and United Black Fund.
