Beyachad we build our community

IAC Beyachad is an inspirational program that guides and supports Volunteer Leaders to develop a series of grassroots events that are meant to unite the Israeli-American community, and to strengthen their cultural identity.

Events include Israeli music, cuisine and holidays.

The IAC is now accepting requests from Israeli-American Volunteer Leaders around the United States who wish to serve the Israeli-American community by producing community events.

In order to create a community event, the IAC offers support to Community Leaders who meet the following criteria:

  1. The Volunteer Leader must demonstrate at least one successful community event/initiative they have previously led.
  2. The Volunteer Leader should commit to initiating at least 3 IAC Beyachad community events throughout the year with the support of the IAC.

2. The primary event should target participants, must include the Israeli-American community, and the event should be open to the entire local Israeli-American community. 

3. The participants at the event should be at least 50% Israeli-American.
