Connect to Israel - Make it Yours

Tzachi Levy, Senior Shlicha for Israel Engagement

What makes Israel special and close to each of us is the way we choose to be engaged with Israel. Israel can exist in our everyday lives in ways that are unique and personal to each of us:  listening to Israeli songs, watching Israeli films, clicking "Like" or tweeting things that happening in Israel, celebrating Israel independence day or standing in respect for the fallen soldiers of Israel,  enjoying Israeli food in local restaurants, or by stand up for Israel in rallies, and vigils. Through community events listed on Jconnect and programs sponsored by The Jewish Federation,  you can find your own way to Make Israel Yours.

While in 1948 less than ten percent of the Jewish population lived in the Jewish state, seventy years later almost every second Jew calls Israel home. This is a remarkable achievement, which only few Zionists predicted half a century ago. What was also unforeseen, however, is the fact that today there exists a large Israeli diaspora all over the world. The expatriate Israeli ...
