IT ALL STARTS WITH A SPARK…
The opening of IAC Houston exists to be the spark and a force that unifies local Israeli-Americans. The IAC empowers the Israeli-American community to become an essential partner to the Jewish community in its quest to expand its impact, and to deepen its connection to Israel.
IAC Houston has developed a range of innovative programs that will begin to engage Israeli-Americans in the community, and channel their innovative spirit and combined energy into volunteerism, activism and build a meaningful connection with a myriad of Jewish organizations.
COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT. PHILANTHROPY. ACTIVISM.
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 generations, and the bond between the peoples of the United States and the State of Israel.
…IN A PARTNERSHIP THAT PROTECTS OUR FUTURE.
We believe that uniting the Houston Israeli-American community and connecting its capacity to the local Jewish community will result in deep, mutually beneficial partnerships that will yield profound consequence, including greater protection of Jewish peoplehood and the State of Israel.
The elimination of perceptual divides between Israeli-Americans and the larger Jewish community demands a spark, the ignition of the realization that we are stronger together and that only the foundation of our past will ensure our future. That is the role of Houston’s Israeli-American Council.
For us to continue to be the spark we need your spark, your contributions and commitment. Ours is a mission that benefits all members of the Israeli-American and Jewish communities and accordingly we need support from everyone. We welcome and invite you to take part in the IAC Houston community!
