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.

Members are welcome to volunteer for committees. For more information about meeting times and dates, please contact the staff liaison. Your participation is appreciated. Information is available here:


Urgent Need: Coats for Sha’ar HaNegev!


As winter approaches, the residents of our sister region in Israel, Sha’ar HaNegev, who lost all of their belongings in the October 7th terrorist attack, are in urgent need warm jackets and coats.


• A $50 donation will provide a gift card for one coat.

• Please consider contributing in $50 increments to supply gift cards for more than one coat.


Your support can make a significant difference in keeping the Sha’ar HaNegev community warm during these challenging times.




“5 Minutes Today for Israel”


Jewish voices are getting drowned out. There is a well orchestrated Anti-Israel effort resulting in dangerously disproportionate influence and important efforts and petitions are getting lost.


“5 Minutes Today for Israel” provides a centralized, manageable action-item bulletin to focus your efforts. Please opt in to receive a daily list of single-click actions you can take, straight from your inbox, to advocate for Israel and push back against antisemitism.
