Focus on Israel
Congregation B'nai Israel stands firmly for the proposition that we are deeply and
passionately connected to the Land and the State of Israel. In order to foster this
relationship, it is necessary to maintain a heightened awareness of and education
about what is happening in Israel and to bring Israel closer to our daily lives. In
order to accomplish these goals, "Focus On Israel" has been created. Its role is
to initiate and coordinate activities - cultural, political and national - concerning
Israel and its relationship to our members, our community and the world around
