One of the best ways that American Jewish communities can support Israel is by having a strong, powerful, vibrant Jewish community, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak told the nearly 700 attendees at the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix's Mega Israel event on March 1.

A generation ago, Israel's biggest need was financial, Barak told those at the Scottsdale Princess resort, but now that Israel is economically in better shape, Jewish communities around the world have a commitment to take care of the elderly and vulnerable in their community and, most importantly, give the next generation the Jewish education and experiences they need to strengthen their Jewish identity, he said. He also encouraged communities to continue to send young people to spend time in Israel.
