Israeli-American Council aims to unite Israeli community in U.S.
|Follow j. on||and|
The Israeli-American Council has announced a nationwide expansion plan to unite Israeli Americans living in the United States.
The organization estimates that nearly 800,000 Israeli expatriates live throughout the U.S., but they are not connected by any national organization.
The IAC was founded in Los Angeles in 2007 by a group of L.A.-based Israeli businessmen.
“It is important to realize that many Israelis are not used to living in the diaspora and, as a result, are disconnected from the Jewish American community and its institutions. Many of their kids assimilate at an astounding rate,” said Adam Milstein, chairman of the Israeli-American Council’s expansion committee.
The plan includes opening a national headquarters and local chapters across the country. — jta
