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.

"May all the foliage of the field, all grasses trees and plants, awake at my coming, to send the powers of their life in to the words of my prayer, so that my prayer and speech are made whole through the life and spirit of all growing things, which are made as one by their transcendent Source."

- Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav
