World Solidarity Day

October 30, 2007

Over 50 communities in the United States and 80 around the world hosted student-led events for World Solidarity Day, an initiative of the World Zionist Organization and the Jewish Agency for Israel. These photos were taken at World Solidarity Day in New York, where one thousand students gathered in front of the United Nations in a rally on behalf of all of the abducted Israeli soldiers organized by the American Zionist Movement and the Jewish Community Relations Council. The rally attracted high school and college students, local government officials and Jewish leaders.

AZM’s Sderot “Yom Kef”

Bringing Zionist Cheer to Sderot’s Children

For the second year, AZM is organizing Yomei Kef to reach out to families in Israel’s south. These Israelis have suffered greatly from living under an unyielding barrage of Qassam rocket fire for the last five years. Working through the WZO Department for Zionist Activities, AZM’s Yomei Kef – days of fun – provide a reprieve from the constant tension, with an itinerary featuring enrichment as well as fun.

One Year is Too Long: Rally for the Soldiers

On July 16, 2007, 5,000 people gathered outside the United Nations to demand the immediate and unconditional release of the abducted Israeli soldiers Gilad Shalit, Ehud Goldwasser, and Eldad Regev, who have been in the custody of terrorists for more than a year. Speakers included Karnit and Miki Goldwasser, wife and mother of Ehud Goldwasser, as well as political and community leaders. The rally was sponsored by the American Zionist Movement as well as the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York in cooperation with the United Jewish Communities and UJA-Federation of New York.

The Amazing Israel Race

It may have seemed like a lazy Sunday in Manhattan, but on April 22, 2007, for more than 75 college students and birthright alum, the pressure was on. Following a string of cryptic clues, the 16 teams of participants raced through Manhattan, using their knowledge of Zionist history and their city smarts to identify and visit 12 sites with Zionist significance. The race was facilitated by volunteers, including both Israelis and Americans, who orchestrated fun learning tasks at each site. Below are some photos of memorable moments along the way. The race was sponsored by the American Zionist Movement, USD Hagshama and the Jewish National Fund.
