Greater Philadelphia ZOA plans to have elections later this year both for officers and for members of our Board of Directors. Your wisdom, experience, know-how and commitment to Israel and the Jewish People can help our chapter succeed and accomplish more as a part of our inner circle. Brainstorm and work closely with some of our region’s most dedicated Zionists to promote Israel and Zionism, strengthen the US-Israel relationship in our region and defend the Jewish community.
All members in good standing are eligible for consideration. To learn more, please call Executive Director Steve Feldman at 610-660-9466
Earlier this month a wonderful couple in Cherry Hill hosted a Greater Philadelphia ZOA parlor meeting at their home and ironically the audience consisted of nothing but “actors on the stage”: Pro-Israel/pro-Zionist/pro-Jewish activists who truly commit their time, efforts and energy to helping the community. It was a pleasure to be in their company to discuss key issues, sharpen their advocacy/activism skills and of course to discuss all that the Zionist Organization of America does locally and nationally.
These attendees realize the heightened level of anti-Jewish activity throughout America and in our region — and that it cannot be thwarted by looking on passively. They realize – to cite a still-relevant adage: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Are you a strong advocate for Israel, Zionism and the Jewish People? Do you have friends, neighbors, colleagues or family members who share that passion and who want to get involved in educating the community, pro-actively strengthening support for Israel and the Jewish People and combatting Jew-hatred – or be more effective at what they are already doing? Do you want to let them know about ZOA and the vital work that we engage in?
Please consider hosting a Greater Philadelphia ZOA parlor meeting to accomplish all of the above … and more.
For details, please call Executive Director Steve Feldman at 610-660-9466.
ACTION ALERT from Greater Philadelphia ZOA:
What Can Each of Us Do:
Our Media Action Guide Updated
The Iran deal, the “peace process,” the International Criminal Court, Israel’s upcoming elections, Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, the BDS movement, false accusations of medical “apartheid” – these topics and more will continue to be in the news media in the weeks and months ahead, and supporters of Israel can make a difference by being in touch with media decision-makers and by submitting letters to the editor. Contact editors and news directors and politely, calmly and concisely explain the fallacies and/or missing facts in their reports. Submit letters to the editor to explain context and dispute claims. And remember to be pro-active also to tout the many positive aspects of Israel or to let the media know about what Israel’s enemies are doing. Both of these are often unreported.
