Each year the Stamford Jewish Community Center welcomes active duty officers from the Israel Defense Force (IDF) to our community. The goal of the visit is to build bridges between Americans and Israelis, to learn about each other, person-to-person, while building lasting relationships and a profound sense of extended family. There are many ways to participate in this memorable experience. There will be numerous opportunities during the soldiers' visit to meet, exchange ideas and learn from one another. Keep an eye out for further information about the JCC Tzahal Shalom program and a schedule of events.
