Changes are coming. The World Zionist Organization has tremendous influence behind the scenes of the Jewish community, with over $1BN of charitable dollars distributed. Reform and Progressive movements are mobilizing to redirect those funds away from traditional recipients in order to change the nature and boundaries of Judaism in Israel and around the world. This isn’t a secret. It is happening openly. We need to mobilize even more strongly to become a force for good, for Torah, for safety and security in our communities. Vote here
