Israel programming at Yale ranges from the political to the social and cultural. We strive to create a community where people with various viewpoints can feel comfortable and have their voices heard. These organizations hold regular discussions and planning meetings and also host a wide variety of guests including speakers, musical artists, filmmakers, and writers. Additionally, Yale Friends of Israel serves as the umbrella organization for other Israel groups on campus. Every year, Slifka Center hosts multiple trips to Israel including Birthright.
