September Tzedakah Box: Israel Religious Action Center

For decades, the Israel Reform Movement, and its legal and advocacy arm – the Israel Religious Action Center, have been serving on the front lines of nurturing Israel as a Jewish and democratic state, one that adheres to the vision of Israel’s Declaration of Independence as a country for all its citizens and one that Jews around the world are proud to call home.

Today, members of the new government threaten to override Israel’s core values with insidious racism, extremism and discrimination. A barrage of coalition agreements form a powerful storm that endangers IRAC’s legal achievements which secured Israel as a Jewish and democratic homeland. A legal revolution, if allowed to pass, will block attempts to challenge in courts the extreme initiatives of the government and will gravely harm Israel’s democratic nature, leaving the rights of Reform Jews, women, LGBTQ and Arabs unprotected.

In addition, due to the anti-Reform views of the new government and its ministers the Israel Reform Movement stands to lose more than $1.5 million in government funding. These programs provide critical support for rabbis and congregational activities, educational programs, and assistance to new immigrants, including many from Ukraine and Russia.

Beth Am stands proudly with our allies in Israel. We will prevail and continue to fight and stand up for an Israel that is a democratic state for all Jewish people and all its citizens.
