Adas Israel in the Community

     

If you think more money should be spent supporting a pluralistic, democratic Israel – an Israel that we, our children, and grandchildren will be proud to recognize – VOTE NOW. If American Conservative Jews vote as a block, we can support our Israeli colleagues and make a difference in how funds are distributed. http://votemercaz.org/
