Center for Israel Engagement

As Jews, the historical connection to Israel is an unbreakable bond, but maintaining that connection to Israeli society, life, and culture from so far away can be challenging. That’s the role of Federation’s Center for Israel Engagement (CIE). CIE strengthens our communal and personal connections to Israel through professional delegations, student exchanges, an annual Israel Film Festival, Israel experiences for young adults, and Ulpan, a Hebrew language class.
