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.

  • A message from IMPJ

  • Rosh Chodesh Chesvan 5775 Torah Reading

  • “How I Stopped Hating Women of the Wall and Started Talking to My Mother.”

Rabbi Naamah Kelman, Dean of Hebrew Union College in Jerusalem, is encouraged by the new and innovative ways that Israelis are celebrating Shabbat.  Many of these creative approaches, which are often led or influenced by the Reform community, are attracting secular Israelis to appreciate their Jewish heritage.
