UAHC Financial Support for Reform and Progressive Judaism in Israel

Adopted by the General Assembly
Union of American Hebrew Congregations
October 29-November 2, 1997 Dallas

The UAHC has consistently supported a democratic and pluralistic State of Israel. Although Reform and Progressive institutions in Israel are gaining strength, a shortage of resources hampers their growth.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the UAHC, its synagogues and their members give high priority to the provision of financial resources that will increase and strengthen Reform and Progressive Jewish institutions in Israel;

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the UAHC, its synagogues, and their members reinforce their commitment to ARZA, ARZA Canada, the World Union for Progressive Judaism, and the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism in support of Reform and Progressive Jewish life in the Jewish State.
