The Israel Action Committee is dedicated to increasing the knowledge of the Temple community and our neighbors regarding Israel’s many contributions to the world, cultural, economic and scientific.  We are also concerned about alerting the public to misrepresentations of Israel’s policies in the media.  You can help by being part of our "Supporting Israel Made Easy" strategy.  The following provides a number of simple “I” options for supporting Israel all year long.
 
I invest:

      • Use this link to purchase Israel Bonds for as little as $36.  These bonds are perfect gifts for Bar Mitzvahs, birthdays and other special occasions.

I Critique:

  • We have all seen examples of how reports on television or other media unfairly represent Israel.  You can visit the following sites and report such instances:

www.camera.org

www.honestreporting.com

I influence:

  • Have something you wish to communicate to your representatives in the Senate or Congress?

Scott Garrett is Temple Israel’s representative in the house, and you can contact him or any other representative by going to www.house.gov

  • Want to reach our senators, Frank Lautenberg or Robert Menendez? Use this link www.senate.gov.

I advocate:

  • Want to offer yourselves as public speakers to a variety of groups, both Jewish and non-Jewish?  Contact Joy Kurland (201-820-3946) of the United Jewish Appeal of Northern New Jersey (UJANNJ) and find out how you can be of service.

In general, be prepared, “if your hear something, say something….”  Don’t be intimidated by other people making statements about Israel that you know to be factually incorrect.
