Welcome to the Weintraub Israel Center of Tucson!

The Weintraub Israel Center, a joint project of Jewish Philanthropies of Southern Arizona and the JCC, is dedicated to bringing the cultural richness of Israel to Tucson. From Israel travel information to cultural programs, community dialogues, and innovative Tucson-Israel Partnerships, the Weintraub Israel Center is Tucson’s premier resource for all things Israeli. The Center focuses on fostering a strong Jewish identity with Israel at heart.

The Weintraub Israel Center’s mission is to engage the Jewish Community of Southern Arizona as well as the broader community in building a living bridge to Israel, its people and its history. This is accomplished by using educational experiences, advocacy and outreach. Since its establishment in 1997, the Center has had a profound impact on our community, bringing Israel into our lives in dynamic ways.

ISRAEL EDUCATION uses multiple ways to educate the Jewish and greater Tucson Communities regarding Israel, in order to provide a deep, multi-faceted, realistic, and non-polemical picture of Israel that goes beyond head-lines and slogans regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict. The Israel Action Network, in partnership with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, counters assaults made on Israel’s legitimacy.

PARTNERSHIP2GETHER is a program parterning Tucson with the Israeli communities of Kyriat Malachi and Hof Ashkelon. This endeavor provides the opportunity for our communities to connect and interpersonal relationships to flourish. We focus on two areas; first- the people-to-people aspect allows individuals to meet one another, share, connect and build relationships, second- inviting Tucson volunteers, to take part in the amazing Zionist project of making Israel a better Jewish democratic State. Partnership 2Gether (P2G) is a program of the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI). Visit P2G on Facebook.
