WHAT YOU CAN DO

1) STAY INFORMED                                                                                                   8076-200.png

Stay up-to-date on events in Israel through timely information on our website and IAC programs. The IAC staff can speak to your congregation or community about Israel advocacy, current events, Israeli politics, or Israel in the media.

2) LOBBY ELECTED OFFICIALS                                                                                                                   lobbying-clipart-aa713f_d794fae59ef04f88aa81a26b9532d397.gif

Be sure that your elected officals hear your articulate, well-reasoned points of view. Hearing from constituents helps convince an elected official of the merits of a point of view, as well as the breadth of support for it.
