The CJLL Israel Center at the MJCC offers members of our community across the spectrum of beliefs and backgrounds a home for serious cultural and intellectual exploration of Israel. We foster an open and respectful dialogue on cultural, political, social, and religious issues while encouraging a diverse array of perspectives and opinions.
The CJLL Israel Center also seeks to offer our community an insightful view into Israeli society through a rich blend of programs, encounters, and community events designed to bring the cultural richness of Israel to Memphis. From learning Hebrew in our ECC, through sophisticated lectures offered to our Senior adults, all ages can forge deep person to person connections that build bridges across the oceans, including with our sister city of Shoham. Headlined by our Community Shlicha, the CJLL Israel Center has opportunities for everyone to engage and to figure out where Israel fits into their personal narrative.
