ISRAEL & OVERSEAS

   

Israel today faces an intensive and increasingly sophisticated assault on its right to exist as a sovereign, democratic Jewish state.

Israel today faces an intensive and increasingly sophisticated assault on its right to exist as a sovereign, democratic Jewish state. On college campuses,  and within professional and academic associations, in global politics and throughout local communities, instances of delegitimization targeting Israel continue to arise. It's our mission to support Israel.

The Federation seeks to educate our local community and advocate for Israel within North Carolina.  We work with national organizations to counter these acts of delegitimization and to positively shape and lead the conversation about Israel within our community. We worked hard with our State Legislature to make North Carolina 22nd State to pass and enact anti-BDS legislation.

We work to strengthen support for the fruitful ongoing economic and cultural relationship between Israel and North Carolina, and continue to support Federation programs in 70 countries around the world.
