The Jewish Voice NY is endorsing and is urging our readers to vote for the ZOA Coalition (Slate #11) in the ongoing 2020 World Zionist Congress (WZC) elections. The ZOA Coalition’s impressive record of real accomplishments, their work to spread the truth about the Jewish people’s rights to the land of Israel; and their inclusion of 27 of the strongest pro-Israel organizations, makes the ZOA Coalition well-deserving of our endorsement and our readers’ votes.
At the most recent World Zionist Congress, every single pro-Israel and pro-Jewish resolution was initiated by the ZOA Coalition. ZOA Coalition led the successful two-year battle to pass a broad anti-BDS resolution that includes combatting boycotts against Jews living in Jerusalem and Judea-Samaria. ZOA Coalition also initiated a WZO program to encourage buying Israeli products; and initiated and obtained passage of a vital resolution giving highest funding priority to rescuing and bringing to Israel Jews who are endangered by global antisemitism. ZOA Coalition is working to assuring that Jewish institutional funds are used to preserve the safety of the Jewish people.
The ZOA Coalition also initiated and obtained passage of resolutions: to establish a worldwide WZO program to teach about the Jewish people’s legal right to settle and re-establish the Jewish homeland; calling on Israel’s government to exercise its sovereignty over the Jordan Valley; condemning UNESCO for denying the Jewish people’s connection to Jewish sites in Jerusalem and Hebron; and requiring use of the proper names “Judea and Samaria” – instead of the de-Judaized names.
ZOA Coalition has also been leading successful battles to defeat anti-Israel resolutions, including defeating an antisemitic resolution to label Israeli society as full of “institutional racism.”
The 27 wonderful activist organizations on the ZOA Coalition include: Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), Aish HaTorah, Students Supporting Israel, Americans Against Antisemitism, NORPAC, Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI), the Lawfare Project, Hasbara Fellowships, Z Street, Chovevei Zion, American Friends of Ateret Cohanim, American Friends of Likud, major Russian, Persian, Bukharian and Syrian-Jewish groups, the National Conference on Jewish Affairs, and more. (See VoteZOA.org for full list.)
