2015 World Zionist Congress Elections

From the pioneering leadership of Henrietta Szold, to our groundbreaking Defining Zionism in the 21st Century series—Hadassah, The Women's Zionist Organization of America, continues to be at the forefront of Zionist advocacy and engagement.

As Hadassah's 330,000 Members, Associates and supporters, you too can make an impact on the world Zionist movement!

Every five years, the World Zionist Organization holds elections for the World Zionist Congress—the Parliament of the Jewish people. Delegates from Israel, the United States, and other countries in the Diaspora come together to govern and perpetuate the Zionist mission. Delegates are separated in factions based on Israeli political parties or Zionist ideology.

Zionist Spring

Hadassah supporters are encouraged to vote for Zionist Spring, a non-political slate dedicated to engaging world Jewry of all opinions and religiosity in efforts contributing to the betterment of Israel and the Israel-Diaspora relationship. Zionist Spring is comprised of the World Confederation of United Zionists, Young Judaea, Bnai Zion Foundation, and the Baltimore Jewish District.

In order to further Hadassah's commitment to non-partisanship, in 1994 Hadassah received independent status within the World Zionist Organization. Hadassah receives an allotment of 32 delegates, to be determined through an internal process not public elections. Hadassah delegates to the World Zionist Congress participate in a faction with the World Confederation of United Zionists, of which Hadassah is a founding member.

While Hadassah does not stand for elections, a vote for Zionist Spring supports Hadassah's interests at the World Zionist Congress.
