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.
