Win $15,000 for Your Synagogue: Vote Torah!

19 Mar 2015

Here is an opportunity to win $15,000 for your synagogue:

The Orthodox Union is calling on synagogues to designate the Shabbat of April 17-18, Parshat Shemini, to promote voting for the Religious Zionist- Vote Torah Slate in the ongoing World Zionist Congress Elections. The election will have a direct impact on funding for religious day schools and camps in America and Israel. A prize drawing contest has been created with an opportunity to win $15,000, as an incentive for synagogues to promote voting.[i]

Did you know your vote can determine:

The number of seats held by each party in the World Zionist Congress determines the staffing of the Jewish Agency, Keren Hayesod – United Israel Appeal, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael /Jewish National Fund and the World Zionist Organization. In turn, budget allocations for each organization are a direct result of the number of board members representing specific ideologies and politics. As such, if the majority of World Zionist Congress delegates are Orthodox/Religious Zionists, the funding organizations will allocate a larger portion of the available budget to educational and communal programming that is important to the Torah-observant world.
