Israel Education and Advocacy Committee

The Israel Education and Advocacy Committee’s mission is to promote an appreciation of Israel through educational programs and Israel advocacy. We strive to kindle an interest in Israel’s history and current events, to foster a deeper understanding of the difficult political and security issues that Israel faces, and to promote among Shir Hadash members a strong feeling of connection to Israel as our Jewish homeland. To further these goals, the committee partners with Israel advocacy organizations such as AIPAC and the Jewish National Fund. Activities sponsored by the committee include guest speakers, participation in community events, discussion sessions, and participation in the annual AIPAC policy conference. We welcome all Shir Hadash members–from all ends of the political spectrum–to join in the discussion and to find ways to make Israel a meaningful part of our lives. For more information please contact Burton Kopulsky (oct13@ameritech.net) or Ed Rice (e.rice1@comcast.net).
