Israel Advocacy

The A-Team is CBI’s Advocacy for Israel committee. Our goals include providing educational programs, forums for discussion, and knowledgeable speakers on current and critical issues dealing with Israel. Committee members disseminate time-sensitive information – you are encouraged to add your name to the list to receive these emails. The A-Team publishes information in the Spiel and the Review, and posts information on the shul hallway bulletin board. We keep you informed of community events in the Tampa Bay area, including but not limited to: AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), Hadassah, Israel Bonds, JCRC (Jewish Community Relations Council), JNF (Jewish National Fund), and more. We welcome you to join us!

Let's continue the CBI-JNF partnership:

For over a decade, CBI and JNF have partnered in planting trees and supporting projects throughout Israel. This partnership allows CBI to earn commissions on donations that, in turn, are used to support Israel Advocacy programs. For example, CBI has provided assistance to our high school and college students to study in Israel.


Please continue purchasing trees and donating to projects that directly affect the well-being of all Israelis. Many opportunities are available. A summary of JNF’s action areas is found at: These project areas include:
