Israel Connection 2017

Shalom all, 

Consider joining me on the Houston Federation Mission to Israel from Feb 26 – March 7, 2017. Click the image above to learn more.

I’ve been on the mission multiple times, and I can tell you that it is a great way to connect with Israel, whether you are a first-timer or a return traveler.

Let’s go home to Israel together, 

Rabbi Teller

Action Request From the Israel Advocacy Committee

The Israel Advocacy Committee of Congregation Brith Shalom (IAC), in conjunction with the AJC 89, urges all congregants to contact their local state member of Congress and state senator in support of anti-BDS bills that have been filed in the 85th session (2017) of the Texas legislature. House Bill 89 (HB 89) and Senate Bill 134 (SB 134) prohibit state government entities and state pension and endowment funds from making investments or doing business with companies that boycott Israel. 

The movement to boycott, divest and promote sanctions against Israel (BDS) seeks to undermine Israel’s legitimacy as a state. It is important to let your elected representative know that economic warfare and the delegitimization of Israel are not goals you approve of.
