The Israel Advocacy Committee was established to foster our congregation's connection to Israel. The committee provides cultural, entertaining and educational programming to our congregants. One of the goals of the committee is to partner with an Israeli Conservative Synagogue in Ashkelon, Israel, to share information and experiences on all levels. Every age group, from pre-schoolers to seniors, has the opportunity to learn about life in Israel first-hand through mutual correspondence. The committee has access to many media organizations so that proper information of reported news can be updated on a regular basis. The committee encourages any interested congregant to join its monthly meetings. All viewpoints are welcome.


Suffolk Coalition for Israel

The ENJC Israel Committee, under the leadership and vigorous efforts of Bryan Tropper, has been working to create a coalition of Suffolk congregations to combine efforts toward amplifying our support of Israel. With a core group of local synagogues, each with its own group of people passionate about supporting Israel and the Jewish people, we are collaborating to champion one another's programming, fundraising, and Israeli advocacy. We ask that you please participate and promote the efforts of our local shuls in showing your solidarity with Israel. Please also see your latest Weekly Update for links to organizations and resources to help the Israeli people.
