We Support Israel

“Od lo avdah tikvateinu…”

These words from the Israeli national anthem, translate as “we have still not lost our hope..the hope of 2,000 years, to be a free people in our own land.” It is so easy to forget what a miracle the Modern State of Israel truly is. No matter our political beliefs, whether we consider ourselves left or right, we need to strengthen our ties to Israel. We need to educate ourselves. We need to passionately engage in Israel’s challenges and Israel’s successes. We need to commit our support to the growing Conservative/Masorti movement in Israel.

It is our sacred task to take advantage of the many opportunities available to educate our people on the important issues of the day, strengthen their ties to the State of Israel and its citizens, and enhance our capabilities to assist those members of our own Movement who make Israel their home.
