US Election for the 38th World Zionist Congress


The World Zionist Congress (WZC) will meet in October 2020 in Jerusalem. It is the international “parliament of the Jewish people” and the continuation of the global gatherings which Theodor Herzl began when he convened the first Zionist Congress in Basel in 1897.

In the United States the American Zionist Movement (AZM) organizes a grassroots vote where the American Jewish community elects 145 delegates to the WZC. This election is also an opportunity to show broad support for Zionism and to express views on important matters affecting the Jewish community, Israel and the Diaspora.

Voting will be from January 21, 2020 to March 11, 2020.

You can now register to vote, and sign a petition in support of a new slate, and/or sign a Letter of Assent (only needed if you are delegate candidate).
