Yisraelim in Action
Israelis abroad share pride in their Israeli identities. Many of them seek to explore and deepen their connection to Israel and Judaism but lack the opportunities to do so in a way that is tailored to their cultural and language needs.
Yisraelim and its partners are creating a better connection between Jewish communities abroad and local Israelis through a approach tailored to the population’s unique needs. Senior Jewish Educators and Senior Israel Educators are building unique experiences focused on Jewish and Israel-related topics including Shabbat retreats, social justice initiatives, Bat and Bar Mitzvah programs, and more.
