World Zionist Congress

Aytzim's Green Zionist Alliance is the first and only organization focused on the environment to ever participate in the World Zionist Congress.

In 2015, Ayztim's Green Israel slate secured on seat at the 37th World Zionist Congress; the GZA secured three seats at the 36th World Zionist Congress in 2010; two seats at the 35th World Zionist Congress in 2006; and one seat at the 34th World Zionist Congress in 2002.

Aytzim's Green Zionist Alliance has been embraced by all streams of the Zionist movement — left to right, secular to orthodox — leading to what many referred to in 2006 as "the Green Congress." Though our Congress delegations have been small, we have passed seven environmental resolutions at the last two Congresses, and we have appointed some of Israel's leading environmental activists to the board of directors of Keren Kayemet L'Yisrael / Jewish National Fund in Israel.

"Our concern with environment cannot be reduced to what can be used, to what can be grasped. Environment includes not only the inkstand and the blotting paper, but also the impenetrable stillness in the air, the stars, the clouds, the quiet passing of time."

- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
