ARZA Canada, strengthening ties of Reform Jews to Israel
ARZA Canada is an affiliate of the Union for Reform Judaism and its Canadian Council. We are a member organization of ARZENU, the International Association of Reform Zionists, and the Canadian Zionist Federation. With over 6,000 members, our mandate is to connect with Reform communities throughout Canada, foster connections with and strengthen our ties to the Reform Movement in Israel, and work to realize the vision of Reform Zionism.
The Reform Movement Supports 'Stop the Sirens' Campaign
Please click here and select the IMPJ Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism fund and add a note in the message box “Stop the Sirens”.
As Hamas continues to launch hundreds of rockets at targets in the Negev and throughout the center of Israel, our North American Reform Movement is working to help support millions of Israelis in harm's way, many huddled in bomb shelters. As we did two years ago, the Reform Movement has joined with the Conservative Movement and JFNA (the Jewish Federations of North America) to raise and distribute funds to provide emergency aid and alleviate the pain and suffering of our Israeli brothers and sisters. At times such as these we especially feel connected to our people. We hope you will join us in doing our part by contributing funds to this critical joint effort.
