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.
Rarely are we speechless with regards to Israel, but as the news of cancellation of the Kotel compromise and the subsequent conversion bill emerged, we were. As the Canadian Reform Jewish community with a deep love of Israel we recognize the importance of diversity and religious pluralism.
I will continue to share news as I receive it. ARZA CANADA is working with our many Zionist and other Jewish organizations. I will inform you of unified steps going forward as best as possible.
