The Israeli Center provides cultural, social and educational opportunities for Israeli families in our community. It also strives to connect Israelis and Americans through programs that enrich American Jewish life. It offers social and cultural events, holiday workshops for families in Hebrew, Israeli Scouts for teens, Israeli folk dancing, Israeli films, holiday parties, entertainers, and special presentations on subjects of particular interest to Israelis. It also offers the Israeli Business Circle, a networking initiative for Israeli professionals; the Women’s Circle, a similar initiative for Israeli women; and Emek, an Israeli language and cultural after-school program for children in grades K-9.

IAC Cinematec

IAC Cinematec was founded to introduce the US public to Israeli films, film makers, and daily life in Israel in an effort to create an Israeli-American community of film fans, who can share in the experience and enjoy dialogues about the films. Films are screened with English subtitles and attended by a guest director, actor, or a film professional, who will discuss issues related to the film in English.

Israeli Society Through the Lens of Cinema

Over the last decade and a half, Israel has emerged as one of the great centers for filmmaking. In addition to its artistic excellence, Israeli cinema provides intimate insights into the dynamic nature of Israel and its diverse people. Prospecting the cinema provides an ideal “lens” by which we gain a greater understanding of Israel’s history, culture and challenges. Through film clips from movies spanning the decades, Dr. Eric Goldman will examine the changing nature of Israeli society as reflected through its cinema.

Eric Goldman is adjunct professor of cinema at Yeshiva University and author of “The American Jewish Story through Cinema.” He is a film critic for The Jewish Standard.
