Israel Committee

The Mission of Temple Beth Abraham’s Israel Committee is to foster a connection to, and love of, Eretz Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael: the land of Israel and the independent, democratic State of Israel. The committee promotes the State of Israel as a vital component of our identity as American Jews and advocates for the civil and religious rights of all of its citizens.

The goals of the Israel Committee are to foster a connection to, and love of, Israel through:
• educational programs;
• religious school education and life-long learning programming;
• cultural programs;
• travel to Israel;
• promotion of ARZA membership;
• support of Israeli companies and merchants.

The Israel Committee meets every month on the second Wednesday of the month (unless there is a holiday).

The chair of the Israel Committee is Marla Peers,

The Adult Education and Israel Committees of Temple Beth Abraham present:


SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22 at 12:30pm

Join TBA’s Adult Education and Israel Committees for a discussion about peacemaking: the purview of national leaders and diplomats; and peacebuilders: ordinary citizens, who have the power to influence others to reduce the barriers of fear and resentment, and encourage dialogue and mutual understanding, in the hopes of securing lasting peace among Israelis and Palestinians.

Founding Director of the Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel (ICCI), Ron Kronish is now an independent scholar, educator, speaker, and writer. He is the author of Profiles of People, which will be for sale at the event for $18.00 each (cash only, please).

Join us at 12:30pm for a light lunch.  Livestream and in person discussion begins at 1:00pm

The Club will establish new connections between our community and the State of Israel through research and investment in Israeli companies.

And we’ll try to make a few “shekels” for Club members as well!

Club is open to new members and meets monthly on the second Wednesday of the month.

The Israel Committee hosts Shekelvestors, but Shekelvestors is not a program of the Israel Committee or Temple Beth Abraham. It is open to members of TBA and the community.
