Welcoming Israeli Businesses to New Jersey

The New Jersey-Israel Commission is committed to advancing trade and investment opportunities between the two states while helping the Garden State grow and prosper.

In New Jersey, we embrace our strong relationship with Israel and see Israelis moving not only their homes, but their businesses, from nearby states and major cities to reap the benefits of what we offer.

New Jersey is the ideal location for Israeli companies looking to expand into the United States or find a new location for their business. Our state’s economy complements many of key Israeli industries:

Autonomous Vehicles
Renewable Energy
Life Sciences
Food Innovation
Cyber Security
High Tech
