How do you say Hoosier in Hebrew?

May 23, 2018

However you say it, there's little doubt that the connection between Israel and Indiana, specifically our Michiana community, has been strengthened over many years of Partnership trips and Shlichim (Israel Emissaries) representatives. 

We are very fortunate to have made deep and lasting bonds with both the people and the land of Israel. Here are just a few stories from our community.


Read "Bringing Israel to Michiana" by Yael Polunsky, former shlicha of the Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley


Read "Connecting to the land and people" featuring Debby Barton Grant, CEO & Executive Vice President of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis


Read "A recent experience in Israel" featuring Pat Boettcher, who attended a recent community trip to Israel
