CJP Strategic Israel Engagement’s (SIE) mission is to inform, engage, and empower the Greater Boston community in support of Israel. We inform people about the most pressing issues facing Israel and the region, engage individuals in building meaningful relationships with Israel, and empower our community to advocate on Israel’s behalf.
SIE offers a range of educational and inspiring programs. We foster thoughtful dialogue about Israel through our CommUNITY Israel Dialogue and israel360 initiatives, train activists through our Hakol Israel Leadership Program, and partner with the Israeli American Council on a real-time online advocacy center called the Boston Media Room.
SIE also provides opportunities for thought leaders and decision-makers to expand their knowledge of Israel by experiencing the country firsthand. Our study tours immerse participants in a range of perspectives so they can develop an appreciation for the complexity of the region’s issues.
An independent study of the Massachusetts-Israel economic relationship found that more than 200 Israeli-founded businesses now call Greater Boston their home, generating more than $18 billion in economic benefit to Massachusetts. CJP’s business missions strengthen the economic ties that bind Israel and Massachusetts and create opportunities to forge new partnerships and bolster existing ones.
SIE is committed to fulfilling our vision of a community that is deeply engaged with Israel — one that recognizes its profound significance to the Jewish people and its contributions to the rest of the world, and one that is inspired to proudly share its remarkable story.
