Dear Chaverim,

From Strength to Strength … Together

As a member of ARZA Canada, you contribute to the progressive voice on the world Zionist stage. Thank you for your support in our recent fight for balanced leadership of the World Zionist Organization, ensuring that all perspectives are honoured in the parliament of the Jewish people.

Reform Jews from Israel and around the world worked with their allies to successfully block ultra-Orthodox dominance in the positions of power in the World Zionist Organization.  We succeeded in securing several top positions in the agencies of the WZO. And we demonstrated how it is possible to create change through public awareness and engagement, staying true to our values of fairness and civility.

Thank you to our ARZA Canada delegation for working hard to represent these values at the Congress.

As progressive Jews, we commit ourselves to promote democracy and justice in Israel and around the world.

IMPJ Food Drive

Sharing the light of Hanukkah
Food insecurity is at an all-time high in Israel. You can minimize the gaps in Israeli society and promote social justice by donating now to distribute food packages to those in need. The Keren b'Kavod department of IMPJ runs a holiday food drive and we can help.
Early donations will ensure that more families receive these essential food packages.

The Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism (IMPJ) distributes holiday food packages to all sectors of Israeli society, regardless of religion or status.
The need is especially great this winter, with loss of employment and reduction in social programs due to the Coronavirus.
CDN $72 provides a basket of food and vouchers for toys and books for struggling families of all denominations.

Your donation matters. Give now.
