Every 4 years American Jews (18 years and older) are invited to vote for the World Zionist Congress. But this year the American Section of the World Zionist Organization (WZO) wants to take away this right.
Zionism has always been a democratic movement and now it is in danger. The only global Jewish-Zionist organization to have elections, the WZO implements the Jewish people's policy and programs around the world and now they no longer want to hear your voice. Take a stand, call for elections for the 2010 Zionist Congress!
We are concerned individuals seeking a more inclusive and democratic Jewish community. We believe that Zionism and democracy are complementary ideals not conflicting ideologies. As such we are committed to big tent Judaism and believe the first step to creating a welcoming community is to save what little elements of democracy that do exist in the Jewish community.
The World Zionist Organization and Congress has historically been the Jewish people's only global Jewish democracy but the American Section wants to change this. Take a stand for your rights, democracy, and the Jewish people, tell them we want Democracy and Zionism!
