Advocacy

Welcome to the Israel Advocacy Site! Last updated December 27, 2016

"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." Elie Wiesel, z"l

Guide to the Israel Advocacy Website

The contents of this web site are updated weekly, so visit regularly for the latest suggestions of how YOU can help Israel. 

Be sure to visit the "Advocate for Israel" section of this site (top, right box of this page) to learn what YOU can do to advocate for Israel.

NOTE: We have added a Political Action links (see right hand column) which put you one click away from reaching out to the President of the United States, New York's two U.S. Senators, the Congressman for Manhattan's Upper West Side and, for good measure, the PM of Israel. 

Right underneath that are a series of  "Useful Links", so that you are now one click away from reaching out to key allies in our advocacy for Medinat Israel. Three requests:
