World Zionist Organization Elections

On Friday, October 24, 2014 we had the privilege of hosting Rabbi Josh Weinberg, President of ARZA http://www.arza.org/ . At services that evening Rabbi Weinberg spoke eloquently about the indispensible work that ARZA does on behalf of the Reform Movement in Israel and the reasons why our votes in the upcoming World Zionist Organization elections are so important to Israel and to us. If you were unable to attend services that evening, you can listen to his words about ARZA and the elections

Or watch his full d'var Torah below

World Zionist Organization Elections

In 2015, American Jews have the opportunity to cast their vote for representation in the World Zionist Organization  (WZO)- a body that influences policies and the distribution of funds in Israel. Reform Jewish values - equality, pluralism and peace – can be more effectively championed by the WZO,  if the Reform Movement has strong representation . Learn more about how you can make a difference in this election at "Reform Jews 4 Israel".
