Israel and Global Affairs

The State of Israel’s safety, security and prosperity is of utmost importance to the Jewish community of Greater Baltimore. Our connection to Israel must remain strong and constant. It is the Baltimore Jewish Council’s role to find ways of educating, informing and raising awareness in the Jewish and general community about Israel. We also mobilize the community to take action for Israel when we need to engage our elected officials and others on the relevant political issues and policies.

We have also created the Israel Action Center located on our website that provides information and resources for those who want to become more educated or more active.
