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!
