Inter-Agency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues is an educational organization serving the North American Jewish community with non-partisan resources and programs about Arab citizens and Jewish-Arab relations in Israel. Established in 2006 by leaders of major Jewish organizations*, the Task Force ensures American Jewish leadership, funders and professionals have trusted learning opportunities about these lesser known—yet increasingly prioritized—domestic Israeli issues. Today the Task Force convenes more than 100 organizational members (American Jewish federations, foundations, advocacy organizations, religious movements, Israel educators) in raising awareness and deepening their own professional and communal education on these issues. Our activities include production of publications, educational events and missions, conference sessions and trainings, among others.
