In keeping with our core value of K'lal Yisrael, the Jewish Federation of Howard County continues as always to focus on our brothers and sisters in Israel. The Israel Committee creates programs and events that help educate the community about Israel; including a speaker series and Israeli holiday programs for Yom Ha'Atzmaut and Yom Hazikaron.
