American Friends of The Israel Association of Community Centers

The Israel Association of Community Centers (IACC), supported by the AFIACC, is aiming to maintain the fabric of community life in the current situation by creating programs that will take care of all parts of society and the community, especially vulnerable populations that need us the most, such as the elderly, those with special needs, disabled citizens, etc. Please consider supporting one of these vital programs:

The Story of a Journey program sets out to solve this crucial societal issue.   Read More
