Today, the Vaad is committed to the establishment of an infrastructure in the Jewish communities of these lands, to revive Jewish life by operating schools, from kindergartens to advance learning, a kollel, synagogues,mikvaot, kosher food, senior citizen centers, recreational centers and summer camps.To this end, the Vaad also conducts series of seminars and lectures on Jewish topics, delivered by international educators.
