Five years ago, Reform Jews in the state of Colorado cast 177 votes in the World Zionist Congress election. We can do better. We must do better if we want our Reform Jewish values to be represented in Israel. A vote for the Reform/ARZA slate (number two on the ballot), is a vote for equality, pluralism and democracy.

There are 10 URJ congregations in Colorado with a combined membership of 4056 households. Only 4.36% of those households voted in the last election and still, more than 20 million dollars were distributed to Reform causes in the past five years, new Reform synagogues were established in Israel and leaders were elected who were able to influence Israeli policy and procedure. Successful collaborations with Israeli political parties were forged to influence Israeli society in matters of conversion, marriage and divorce, religious pluralism, gender rights and combating racism.

Imagine what we can do it we triple or quadruple the vote in every state! 

Voting in the World Zionist Election is the only way that American Jews can weigh in democratically about issues in Israel.
