On the Ground
Federation and Federation Partners on the Ground
The Israel Action Network (IAN) is a strategic initiative of The Jewish Federations of North America, in partnership with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, created to counter assaults made on Israel’s legitimacy. Israel today faces an intensive and increasingly sophisticated assault on its right to exist as a sovereign democratic Jewish state. The IAN was created to educate, organize and mobilize the organized North American Jewish community to develop strategic approaches to countering these assaults and develop innovative efforts to change the conversation about Israel and achieving peace and security for two states for two peoples.

Embassy Move & Jerusalem Facts
Today May 14th marked the 70th anniversary of Israeli independence and the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.
The embassy move — which Jewish Federations have lobbied in support of for two decades — reflects a bipartisan effort that has enjoyed cross-party political support in the United States and Israel for decades.
Israel and the United States enjoy a deep friendship that is centered on the shared values of peace, democracy, freedom and progress.
