Brazil-Israel Cultural Center
The Brazil-Israel Cultural Center (CCIB) was founded in 2013 with the presence of the Vice-President of the Republic. The ambassador of Portugal, the Minister-Counsellor of the Angolan Embassy, members of the Citizens Council, Brazilian journalists, the representative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister Eitan Surkis, and members of the local Brazilian community were also present to the ceremony.
The building where the CCIB is installed was purchased by the Brazilian government in 1955. It used to be the Brazilian Embassy headquarters until 1975 when the embassy moved to another address and the CCIB occupied the premises. The CCIB is a non-profit institution whose main objective is to strengthen the cultural relations between the two countries.
Recently, the Embassy returned to the old building, which was refurbished and a new space was added to be used by the CCIB as an extension of its cultural sector.
The CCIB has as its main purpose to promote and publicize the Brazilian Portuguese language and literature in Israel. Its cultural agenda will include Brazilian Portuguese courses, art exhibitions, classical and popular music concerts, films screening, Brazilian cooking lessons and events specially designed for children.
