About us

arzenu is the political voice of Reform, Progressive and Liberal Religious Zionists within the World Zionist Organisation and its subsidiaries. Founded in 1980 as an “ideological grouping” or Brit Olamit within the World Zionist Organization, arzenu has constituent groups in thirteen countries around the world and embraces a two-fold mission: partnering with our local constituents to promote Zionist interest and activities in our congregations and ensuring that Reform Jewish values and interests are represented in the governing bodies of the National Institutions of the State of Israel: the World Zionist Organization, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael and the Jewish Agency for Israel. We use our political strength in the National Institutions to advocate for our values with the Government of Israel.

We advocate for Israel: as it should be and must become. We believe in a Jewish State that embraces both democratic values and Judaism in all of its forms as well as protecting the rights of its minorities. We work for the acceptance and respect of the Reform Movement as a legitimate stream of Judaism by the  sraeli Government. Using our voice in the National Institutions, we support the Israeli Reform Movement in fighting for the issues that are most important to them.

Making it happen

Only Israeli citizens get a vote in the Knesset, but all Jews can vote in the elections to the World Zionist Congress. These elections determine the political power balance in all of the National Institutions for the legislative period until the next congress elections. A strong election result for Arzenu ensures that the Reform movement will maximise its political influence and provide access to the significant fund distributed by the Zionist movement.
