Save $50 and Help Israel!

At this critical juncture, with Iran sanctions and a cut in aid to the Palestinian Authority under consideration, we need to send a strong message to Congress to support these measures and others.
Phone calls, emails, faxes and petitions are each important — yet nothing makes a greater impact on individual members of Congress than taking the time to travel to Washington to meet with the lawmakers and their staff face-to-face in their offices. These are small-group meetings. You will have a chance to speak and be recognized.
On June 6, we can go to Washington together as ZOA members and activists and speak with one strong voice in support of the legislation and issues that will keep Israel and the United States strong and secure.
Take a day to make a difference!
Please let your friends know about the ZOA Pro-Israel Capitol Hill Mission and encourage them to go – even if you are not able to attend. Also, if you cannot attend, please consider a donation to help a student or someone who is unable to afford to attend participate in the Washington Mission this year.
