The World Zionist Congress – Being part of a world movement

Another reflection from Rabbi Danny Burkeman, Pro-Zion and Arzenu
representative at the World Zionist Congress

The World Zionist Congress – Being part of a world movement
In our joint faction meeting with Labour we heard today from
representatives of our groups from across the world.

In Britain we Reform Jews are a minority within a minority – it can be
difficult and sometimes demoralising. Being part of the Arzenu
delegation at the World Zionist Congress is a reminder that we are
part of an international movement, with members spread across the
world. We have allies and supporters around the globe, and we need to
find ways to work more closely together and to strengthen our bonds
and cooperation. It is always refreshing and inspiring to see Reform
Jews from across the globe.

We all face a range of different challenges and problems as a result
of our different national contexts. But there are some challenges and
problems which we all face together. Through cooperation and the
sharing of ideas we can face the future together, and continue to
advance the international message of Reform Judaism and Reform
Zionism.
