Join Greater Boston’s Jewish community as we launch the CommUNITY Israel Dialogue with a tribute to the life and legacy of former Israeli president and prime minister, Shimon Peres (z”l).

A member of Israel’s founding generation and an eloquent spokesperson for his country and for the Jewish people, Shimon Peres was a champion of peace, tolerance, and respect. His strong sense of humanity is an enduring lesson and a fitting platform to launch the CommUNITY Israel Dialogue.

This year-long initiative seeks to engage Boston’s Jewish community in a thoughtful and respectful dialogue across diverse perspectives, while expressing support for a secure and democratic Jewish State of Israel. The program's first community-wide event will take place on Wednesday, March 1 featuring Nadav Tamir, former Consul General of Israel to New England.​
