Vice-chairman of Israel Japan Friendship Society

The Israel-Japan Friendship Society's main objective is to bring the Japanese culture to the Israeli audience.

IJFS members have various relations with Japan; for some, Japanese culture is part of their daily business routine. For others, affiliations and connections to Japan are held through personal interests, whether they have experienced or have yet to experience Japan itself. Our shared work facilitating and promoting Japanese culture in Israel is contributing to our members, as well as others interested in cultural engagement.
