The 2020 World Zionist Congress Elections are now open for voting through March 11!
Now is your chance to have your voice heard in Israel and make a difference in Israeli society. We need each and every Reform Jew in the U.S. to vote for the Reform slate, titled “Vote Reform: ARZA Representing the Reform Movement and Reconstructing Judaism.” Together we can grow our Reform Movement and work towards making progress on the issues we care about: religious freedom, equality, and many more.
The World Zionist Congress is the World Zionist Organization’s legislative body that meets every five years in Jerusalem. The Congress is the only body in which all of World Jewry is represented democratically, and, therefore, is your only democratic opportunity to influence Israeli society. It determines policy in Israel, designates its course of action, and chooses the leadership of three important institutions (the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish National Fund, and the Jewish Agency for Israel) with a combined budget of over $1 billion! Learn how to vote in this election on the ARZA website.
