Celebrate Israeli Culture
Israel comes alive within our walls with exciting story times in early childhood classrooms, stimulating discussions amongst seniors, culinary programs with young adults, enlightening experiences for families and educational films for the whole community.
To provide opportunities for all people of our community to develop and celebrate their personal connection to Israel through innovative and creative programs and partnerships. The Center for Israel provides a valuable resource of connection and engagement with Israel and Israeli life through meaningful programs and partnerships.
Connecting with Israel
Our Center’s aim is to encourage our community to explore its connection to the vibrant, creative and human face of Israel through programs that promote direct relationships to the modern State of Israel, the land and its people. Together, we will endeavor to connect and shape a brighter future for all.
