Unwavering Support for Israel

Support for Israel

In celebration of its 70th year of independence, Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of  America, Inc. (HWZOA), reaffirms its commitment to the State of Israel. We celebrate our  efforts of practical Zionism which helped to build the State of Israel, and pledge to continue our  important work of Tikkun Olam.

HWZOA reasserts its staunch support for Israel’s sovereignty and security, and urges all nations  and leaders to speak out for Israel’s right to defend itself against all threats that endanger the  safety and security of Israeli citizens.

We commend the abiding relationship between the United States and Israel, and encourage  increased cooperation initiatives in: technology, security, medicine, the arts, and culture.

We value the importance of advocating on a federal level for a strong US-Israel relationship. The  friendship between our two countries is never taken for granted, and we as American citizens  represent a bi-partisan commitment between two democracies with shared values.

HWZOA encourages our Members, Associates, and supporters to stand with Israel, especially in  times of crisis, by contacting their elected officials, attending community rallies and programs in  support of Israel, studying Zionism, getting more involved in Hadassah’s activities, and buying  Israeli products.

Hadassah's Policy Statements represent the organization's official stance on a wide variety of issues facing our nation, Israel and other international matters of concern. Policy Statements are debated and voted on at national meetings by Hadassah’s national board and delegates from our membership. Once approved, statements become official policies of the organization and serve to define Hadassah's overall agenda and advocacy priorities. Hadassah, as a charitable organization classified under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is prohibited from any direct or indirect support of, or opposition to, candidates for public office.
