The Israel Committee is dedicated to sharing ways everyone can become more deeply connected to, and educated about, Israel. This is done via events held at Beth israel and elsewhere as well as by producing our monthly e-newsletter “Israel Connection”. Our goal for this newsletter is to present stories of Israel’s heart and soul, not often headlined in the media.

To sign up for our e-newsletter, subscribe here. (You can read the most recent edition below.)

For any questions about our e-newsletter or the Israel Committee, please contact Leanne Shawler, Assistant to Rabbi Berk.
