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.

By joining the Zionist Rabbinic Coalition you can support Israel with other like-minded rabbinic leaders, access trusted resources, and be empowered to foster a love for Israel for generations to come.
