Founded in 2018 by a group of committed volunteers, the Atlanta Israel Coalition (AIC) strives to unite the pro-Israel community in Atlanta and beyond.  As a non-partisan group, the AIC seeks to inspire and educate through a collective effort. Through inclusive educational and community events, the AIC unifies a broad audience, regardless of faith.   The AIC is a gathering place for multi-faceted conversations that combat media bias, a connector to foster a spirit of cooperation amongst pro-Israel organizations, and a means in which to amplify our collective pro-Israel missions. Together our voices are louder, our light shines brighter, and we can be a greater force for good within our communities and across the globe.

The Atlanta Israel Coalition hosted our premiere event with an exclusive screening of Black Forest, a chilling 50-minute Israeli documentary, which chronicles the brutal slaughter of two women, and the extraordinary survival of Kay Wilson. We were so fortunate to have this unique opportunity to debut the Black Forest documentary for the first time in the U.S. and to bring Kay Wilson to Atlanta to tell her inspiring story and to share her message of strength, perseverance, love, and unity with over 200 Atlantans.

The Atlanta community now has a second exciting opportunity to speak out against terror and hate.  Elan S. Carr will be joining us on Sunday, September 15 to speak about “Stopping Anti-Semitism, Anti-Zionism, Hate, and Intolerance”.  Elan S. Carr serves as the U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.  He advises the Secretary of State and is responsible for directing U.S. policies and projects aimed at countering anti-Semitism throughout the world.

This event, open to the Atlanta community, will take place Sunday, September 15 at 6:00 pm at the Atlanta Jewish Academy in Sandy Springs GeorgiaThe program will be preceded by a 4:30 pm VIP reception for Patron ticket holders and Community Sponsors.
