Israel Action Committee (IAC)
Did you know that Temple Jeremiah has an Israel Action Committee (IAC)? Our committee is looking for Temple Jeremiah members who would like to help support our efforts.
The Israel Action Committee’s Mission is to strengthen Temple Jeremiah’s connection to, and support of, Israel through advocacy, education, and cultural events.
Look for some of the following activities in the near future:
* A night at Temple Jeremiah featuring an Israeli themed film, and, of course, Israeli food.
* Programs in which we can partner with our Sister Synagogue in Jerusalem- Temple Har-El (http://www.kharel.org.il/en-us/).
* Bringing new and exciting speakers to Temple Jeremiah to talk about the many ways we can support and advocate for Israel.
Another great way to support Israel is to buy goods MADE IN ISRAEL. Visit https://tinyurl.com/BuyIsraeli for tons of great gift items, along with information on where they can be bought locally.
If you are interested in being involved with the IAC, or would just like to be updated on our activities, we are creating a mailing list- please email Andy Katlin at Miamiis1@aol.com. Or contact IAC Chair, Mark Sulkin, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Israel Action Committee: Dinner with Disabled Israeli Soldiers
Sunday, June 10, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at Temple Jeremiah
Temple Jeremiah’s Israel Action Committee is planning a dinner event for ten disabled Israeli soldiers and their hosts who will be visiting the North Shore area as part of the American Friends of Israel War Disabled Foundation. The cost of the vegetarian dinner will be determined once we have an idea of how many people will attend. We are subsidizing the cost of the veterans, their hosts and the staff of AFIWDF who are running the program.
The 2018 cohort of veterans who will be visiting Chicago have a broad range of service, covering actions from the 1970s up through a few years ago. This is a terrific opportunity not only to lend support to Israel and her veterans who have made personal sacrifices, but also to have an opportunity for you, your children, extended family, friends or neighbors to engage directly with solders who have a unique perspective on life in Israel and also share with them parts of your life as an American. Please RSVP to Donna or call 847.441.5760.
