World Zionist Organization (WZO) Election

Dear Community, The Israel and Zionism Committee would like to inform you about a very important election coming up. If you are worried about the increase in anti-Semitism worldwide and are wondering if there is anything you could do to make a change, this is your opportunity. For the first time in history our community will participate in the World Zionist Organization (WZO) election. WZO was founded in 1897 by Theodor Herzl to promote Zionism, creating the World Zionist Congress as its governing body. Today the WZC is comprised of 3 branches: Israel delegates - U.S. delegates - Diaspora delegates. The U.S. branch is run by the American Zionist Movement (AZM) which conducts its elections as well. By casting our votes for one of the 13 “delegate slates” we will elect representatives/delegates to the World Zionist Congress (WZC). The delegates will represent us at the WZO meetings in Israel legislating and passing new laws. The delegates will make international legal decisions and strategic affairs regarding Israel as well as leadership decisions. They will pass resolutions which can lead to policy changes. Participating in the WZO elections is our chance to have our voices heard on critical issues facing Israel and the Jewish people. Every Jewish person 18 or older who resides in the U.S. can vote. For only $7.50 per person ($5.00 for 25 & under) and a minute to register and vote, we can make an impact on the future of Israel and the Jews. Please encourage others to get involved and vote. You can register and vote after January 21. Go to www.ZionistElection.org to register. For more information contact: Eli Kashi (516) 984-1004, Khandan Kalaty (516) 984-0229. Thank you, UMJCA Israel and Zionism Committee.
