Israelis in Brooklyn was established in April 2010 to provide a sense of community for Israelis in and around Brooklyn. We formed in response to a dilemma shared by so many Israelis living here: how do we pass along our passion and love of Israeli culture to our children who are growing up in an American setting? Israelis in Brooklyn provides a framework for Israelis to start responding to this question by allowing them and their families to sustain and strengthen their Israeli identities through speaking Hebrew, singing, learning, connecting and celebrating holidays in uniquely Israeli ways. We offer an array of programs in Hebrew for Israeli adults, children and families, all designed to reinforce our ties with Israeli culture, the state of Israel and one another. Together, we shape a new answer to the quandary of what it means to be an Israeli in America?
