Rabbis promoting unity with Israel
We are Zionist rabbis who constructively engage with Israel to build bridges with Israel and the Jewish people.
Our mission is to promote unity, understanding, and cooperation among the Jewish communities of Israel and the Diaspora.
Who We Are
The Zionist Rabbinic Coalition fosters love and dedication to Zionism and Israel among generations of American Jews.
The Zionist Rabbinic Coalition is a growing group of over 200 rabbis from diverse American congregations of all Jewish denominations committed to supporting Israel. We are the only multi-denominational rabbinic organization that promotes constructive and positive interaction between the world’s two largest Jewish communities (American Jews and Israeli Jews). We foster a greater understanding of American and Israeli Jews by providing tools, resources and programs to rabbis. We are a non-partisan group that actively and constructively engages the American rabbinic community with Israel with the goal of working to close the gap between our communities.
