About The iCenter:
Our Mission is to bring Israel to the heart of Jewish life and learning by strengthening Israel education as a professional field. The iCenter envisions a world in which every Jewish youth develops a lifelong relationship with Israel. We meet young Jews everywhere they are: in summer camps, on Birthright Israel trips, in youth organizations, schools, synagogues, and on campus. We empower educators with knowledge, skills, and confidence so that young people experience Israel and Israelis as integral to their lives.
