Israel Programs

From the Desk of MERCAZ Olami president, Rabbi Vernon Kurtz
 
At the end of June I had the privilege of leading the MERCAZ USA delegation to Jerusalem for the annual meetings of World Zionist Organization’s General Council, the Jewish Agency Assembly and the JAFI Board of Governors.
 
As always, it was a privilege to be in Jerusalem and attend these international meetings as part of the larger Conservative/Masorti “MERCAZ Olami” delegation. Over the course of the past year, the WZO has been working on a new constitution, to define the issues and create the structures that will enable Zionism to remain meaningful in the 21st century. While a new constitution has yet to be completed, all those in attendance agreed that the Zionist Movement needed a new Jerusalem Program, a new Zionist credo, if we wanted the organization to continue being relevant.
 
As reported in the Spring 2004 MERCAZ newsletter, Dr. David Breakstone, who represents our Movement on the WZO Executive, had been working on drafting a new and revised Jerusalem Program for the past couple of years. His major innovation to the existing Jerusalem Program, which was last amended in 1968, was the call on Israeli and Diaspora Jews to be mutually engaged in shaping Israel as an exemplary society, in working together to improve the society of Israel. Elsewhere, it is reported how I and other MERCAZ representatives were called upon to work out language that would be acceptable to the Orthodox, Reform and Conservative streams. Difficult negotiations went on for nearly a year among the parties. At different points, there were those to our left and right who were prepared to vote against a new Jerusalem Program that didn’t satisfy their specific concerns.
 
I am proud of the role that our organization played in developing the compromise to allow for the Program’s unanimous passage. The reason that we felt that a compromise was necessary is that Conservative-Masorti Zionism involves far more than religious pluralism, as important as it is, in its vision of what Israeli society should become.
 
As Conservative Zionists, we are concerned with the Israel-Diaspora relationship. We are concerned with the growing social gap in Israel between the “haves” and the “have-nots”. We are concerned with the relationship between Israeli Jews, their fellow Israeli Arab citizens and the foreign workers in their midst. And finally, we are concerned about the protection of Israel’s landscape and environment. Without a new Jerusalem Program, there would be no authority to our demand that these issues also be considered part and parcel of the Zionist agenda.
 
Now that the new Jerusalem Program has been officially adopted, our calls for a Jewish State that is based on “mutual respect for the multi-faceted Jewish People, rooted in the vision of the prophets, striving for peace and contributing to the betterment of the world” cannot be ruled out of order.
 
Zionism, the national liberation movement of the Jewish People, brought about the establishment of the State of Israel and views a Jewish, Zionist, democratic and secure State of Israel to be the expression of the common responsibility of the Jewish People for its continuity and future.
 
Jerusalem Program 2004
 
The foundations of Zionism are: The unity of the Jewish People, its bond to its historic homeland Eretz Yisrael, and the centrality of the State of Israel and Jerusalem, its capital, in the life of the nation; Aliyah to Israel from all countries and the effective integration of all immigrants into Israeli society. Strengthening Israel as a Jewish, Zionist and democratic state and shaping it as an exemplary society with a unique moral and spiritual character, marked by mutual respect for the multi-faceted Jewish People, rooted in the vision of the prophets, striving for peace and contributing to the betterment of the world; Ensuring the future and distinctiveness of the Jewish People by furthering Jewish, Hebrew and Zionist education, fostering spiritual and cultural values and teaching Hebrew as the national language. Nurturing mutual Jewish responsibility, defending the rights of Jews as individuals and as a nation, representing the national Zionist interests of the Jewish People and struggling against all manifestations of anti-Semitism. Settling the country as an expression of practical Zionism.
