Barkai - Making Israel Better

So many Israelis, even those who regularly attend synagogue, are alienated from God and Judaism, never experiencing the intellectual, emotional and spiritual riches that Judaism has to offer. Israel is at a crossroads. People are searching for meaning but unsure where to find it. You can help them.

The Zionist, Modern Orthodox communal rabbi is a bridge – connecting Jewish communities, and connecting people with their own heritage. Strong communities, strong families and strong Jews are what ensure the Jewish future in Israel. Support the Barkai Center and make it happen.
