World Zionist Congress Election 2020

Dear Fellow Congregants,

The World Zionist Congress elections are here, and it is time to have our voices heard in Israel! Each and every vote from our congregation is crucial to maintaining a strong Reform presence in Israel. This is our chance to combat the discrimination that the Reform Movement faces in Israel, and advance the causes important to us. Together we can grow our Reform Movement and work towards making progress on the issues we care about: religious freedom, gender equality, advancement of Reform clergy, and many more.
