Vote ARZA in the World Zionist Congress Elections

If enough liberal Jews vote in this election, once again we will assure that the liberal religious community receives both economic support and justice within Israel. It costs $7.50 to register and vote ($5.00 for those under 25). You must be Jewish and over 18 to vote. Make sure you vote for the ARZA ticket that supports Reform Judaism in Israel today. Each Jewish adult in your household can vote. Please do so! Call Rabbi Greenbaum if you need assistance with the voting process. You can even come to CBI and vote using his office computer if you need additional help or do not have a computer at home. Click here to vote.
