Israel is the land of our dreams. It is also very much of this earth. It is stunning, mind-boggling, inspiring, frustrating and endlessly beautiful. It is 4,000 years of the Jewish story; people of every religious tradition, and Jews from evry cornder of the globe. It is a place where every single person knows their own story - and will share it with you! It is waterfalls and ancient ruins, it is spices and markets, it is sacred text and modern innovation. It is a land of conflict and a land of hope.
We support Israel through programs within our temple and with other synagogues in White Plains. As a member of The 5 Synagogues of White Plains we regulary march in the Israel Day parade and other important events. Our Clergy and youth group leaders lead trips to Israel for families and students; our youth learn about the Israel and its history, bounty, and complexities at every age and are encouraged to visit Israel through NFTY during the summer after Confirmation.
