The Israeli American Council plans to create a major hub for Israeli-Americans and American Jews in Los Angeles.

At an event Sunday at the group’s Shepher Community Center, the council announced plans to build an office building on an existing structure for Israeli cultural programming, along with offices, a gymnasium and space for collaboration with nonprofits that promote Israeli and Jewish values.

“Creating a physical gathering space will advance the IAC’s mission to engage and unite Israeli-Americans — and contribute to the broader Jewish community,” Miri Shepher, the council’s Los Angeles chairwoman and benefactor of the center, said in a statement. “We are hopeful that it will be the first center of many around the country.”
