National Security Expertise

for a Strong Israel and United Jerusalem

Established in 2017, the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security (JISS) provides defense and diplomatic counsel to Israel’s leaders; trains the next generation of Israeli national security specialists; and educates the Israeli public and foreign policymakers on Israel’s security dilemmas.

The institute considers the Jewish People’s historic connection to the Land of Israel a central component of strategic worldview; and insists on the importance of united Jerusalem to Israel’s security and destiny. It advances pragmatic policies that keep Israel strong and will lead to stable diplomatic arrangements in the long term.

JISS conducts policy-oriented research, educational conference activity, and outreach to government, military, academia, media and the public.
