The Israel Connections Committee co-sponsors and organizes Israeli movie and dinner nights, speakers on Israel and Middle East current events and festivities to celebrate Yom Ha-Atzmaut, Israel Independence Day. We share celebrations and religious school classroom visits with our sister community in Israel, Temple Or Hadash in Haifa. We also support our community's participation in Israeli-related initiatives of the Greater Boston Jewish community, particularly the Combined Jewish Philanthropies' (CJP) Boston-Haifa Connection. Shir Tikva sponsors youth and member trips to Israel led by our Rabbi, Cantor and education staff. The shared travel experiences establish lifelong bonds with temple friends and families, and a knowledge of Israel that enhances our Jewish life in Wayland.
