My Story. Our Story. The IAC Story.

This is a story of Israelis who came to America. Many didn't plan to stay, most remain deeply connected to Israel as they become proud Americans. Their family represents about 10% of Jewish Americans. This is the story of the IAC. We want to ensure a strong Jewish and Israeli identity for the next generations.

Building a coast-to-coast community with Israel in its heart and Israeliness in its spirit



The mission of the Israeli-American Council (IAC) is to build an engaged and united Israeli-American community that strengthens the Israeli and Jewish identity of our next generation, the American Jewish community, and the bond between the peoples of the United States and the State of Israel.

Over half a million Israeli-Americans live in the United States today. As a vital component of American society, they play a major role in social activism, academia, culture, and innovation. The Israeli-American Council (IAC) is the largest Israeli-American organization in the United States, serving this vibrant sector of the Jewish American community.

The IAC’s effectiveness and success is the direct result of its ability to organize, activate, and engage the Israeli-American community nationwide through cutting-edge programming and activities, developing and empowering community leaders and establishing strategic partnerships with a wide array of nonprofit organizations within the Jewish American community.
