Israel Connections Committee

Darchei Noam’s Israel Connections Committee (ICC) aims to foster connections between the congregation and the State of Israel.


To achieve this goal, the committee offers programs that educate and celebrate Israel-related culture, history and contemporary life and events. The committee also plays an advocacy role by promoting the centrality of the modern Jewish state in our congregation and in opposing delegitimization campaigns against Israel, including boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) and “Israel apartheid” campaigns.


Regular events overseen by the committee include:

  Israeli dancing and singing

  Israeli film nights

  Dissemination of press articles on Israel’s contributions in science and technology, 

    health, medicine and environment

  Celebration of secular Israeli holidays: Yom Ha’atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim​​​

  Speakers on a wide range of topics including:

  • Israeli politics, including the Arab-Israeli conflict
  • Israeli scientific and medical achievements
  • Israeli culture, art, entertainment, and film
  • Israeli history, geography, and archaeology
