Americans For A Safe Israel Inc

EIN: 51-0181418


We are an educational organization created to support an undivided Israel. AFSI was founded in 1970 as an American counterpart to the Land of Israel Movement, asserting Israel’s historic, religious, and legal rights to the land re-gained in the 1967 war. AFSI has argued consistently that a strong, territorially defensible Israel is essential to U.S. and global security interests in the region, and that the “two-state solution,” would endanger the world, while bringing the dissolution of Israel.

Youth Program

Our Youth Program in Israel is bringing thousands of students attending gap year programs in Israel on free day trips into Judea, Samaria, the Jordan Valley and areas currently experiencing conflict. Students are learning the truth about Israel and understanding the importance of a whole Israel. The goal is to have them return home with the ability and desire to spread the truth to their families and friends and stand up for Israel. Extending the education further, we have developed an Ambassador Program to identify selected youth with leadership potential and give them professional training in order to help them emerge as strong young advocates for Israel. They will stand with Israel as part of Am Yisrael. We feel this is the next frontier in Israel Advocacy.

The program is directed by Rabbi Uri Pilichowski who has years of experience teaching young people.

Population(s) Served

Our Chizuk (strength) Missions visit Israel twice a year. We travel throughout Judea and Samaria, along with stops in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and more. Visits to governmental agencies (Knesset, meetings with city and regional officials) major centers, and historic sites (The Temple Mount, the Tomb of the Patriarchs, etc.) are just one focus of our trips.

The heart and soul of our Chizuk Missions are visits to the REAL ISRAEL. Often our “tour guides” are the heads of major NGO’s in Israel who are working to keep Israel safe and sound. They bring us to see the projects they are working on and show us the progress they are making as well as the issues they are facing. Most enjoyable, we visit friends living in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley who share their personal stories about life in their communities. They gain Chizuk - strength - from personal visits with AFSI trip attendees. Mission participants gain Chizuk from learning first-hand how the heroes and heroines in these regions are devoting their lives to keeping Israel safe.

Population(s) Served

Americans For A Safe Israel has teamed up with the Jerusalem-based program, ATID, to offer a program we named Netzah (eternal). Led by Rabbi Yehuda HaKohen of Judea, ATID is an exploration of Jewish identity and the Diaspora student relationship to the authentic Jewish narrative and sense of national mission. AFSI funded a very successful pre-Covid trip into Samaria for the program’s students. Going forward, Gd willing, other Diaspora students who are spending time in Israel involved in Gap Year in Israel, Study Abroad and other programs will be encouraged to join these trips.

After many years of taking adult groups to Judea,Samaria and other areas experiencing conflict, AFSI's late Co-Executive Director, Helen Freedman, was convinced that AFSI’s next most important mission was to bring young people to these areas so that they would be educated about Israel’s truth.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Sep 01 - Aug 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
