Vote Mercaz for the World Zionist Congress

Now more than ever it is critical that the Conservative movement be strongly represented in the World Zionist Congress. It is there that the leadership of the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish National Fund, and the Jewish Agency will be determined, impacting on policy and budgets of hundreds of millions of dollars that will affect the character of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state as well as how resources will be expended on enhancing Jewish communities around the world.

It is vital and urgent that we make our voice heard. This is our Israel, our Judaism, our future that we are talking about and every vote cast will make a difference. We need you to vote MERCAZ, Slate #2 in the elections to the World Zionist Congress taking place at this very moment, and we need you to urge your friends, congregants and colleagues to do the same. The 5 minutes it takes and the $10.00 it costs (a fee that goes directly to the American Zionist Movement to cover election expenses) are a small investment to make in promoting an Israel where everyone will be able to live, practice, pray, educate and celebrate as they wish.

A vote for MERCAZ is a vote for pluralism, egalitarianism, environmental sustainability, democracy and peace. Do it now at The Zionist Congress elections will run through April 30th.
