Israeli Cultural Connection (ICC)

The Israeli Cultural Connection (ICC) at the Mid-Island Y JCC is a hub for the Israeli community on Long Island. It serves as a home away from home, where one can connect, or stay connected, to their Israeli identity and heritage, celebrate Israeli culture, and explore what it means to be an Israeli living outside of Israel.


The goal of the ICC is to strengthen the bonds between Israelis and Americans in the community who share a love for Israel. Through collaborations with other JCC departments, the ICC infuses a deeper  connection to Israel and Israeli culture throughout the JCC.


All programs are open to the community and held in Hebrew unless otherwise stated.


The Israeli Cultural Connection is generously funded by the Israeli American Council, Israeli Consulate and the Mid-Island Y JCC.

The goal of the Dorot is for children from Israeli families to understand and stay connected to their heritage while connecting with their Jewish and Israeli roots.
