IYIM – Israel Region continues in the tradition of the 100 year-old North American Young Israel Movement to foster Judaic ethical and spiritual values, Jewish tradition, Zionism and community.
IYIM focuses on establishing deeper connections to Jewish values and the Land of Israel. This is achieved via enriching programming to empower our participants to strengthen their Jewish identity, personal achievement goals, family unit and contribution to Israeli society and the Jewish Nation. Alongside our work with veteran Israelis and new immigrants in Israel, we have concurrent programming with a focus on strengthening the bonds between Jews in the Diaspora and their Israeli brethren.
Our efforts reach populations in Israel across the socio-economic and ethnic spectrum, with a focus on weaker population groups and communities on the social periphery. These efforts are carried out in the spirit of love and respect for one’s fellow Jew; love of one’s Land and country; and respect for Jewish tradition and acknowledgement of Jewish history.
