WISE TEMPLE IS VOTING REFORM IN THE WORLD ZIONIST CONGRESS ELECTIONS, HAPPENING NOW THROUGH EARLY MARCH.
Your vote for the Vote Reform slate, which takes about 2 minutes to cast, is THE way to make your voice heard for just, healthy, and pluralistic Israel. Delegates elected will help direct funds that can help Reform Judaism continue to flourish in Israel…if we vote. We can help ensure equality, pluralism, and tolerance for all in Israel…if we vote.
All Jews ages 18+ can vote once, and it’s done online. There is an administrative fee of $7.50 ($5 for ages 18-25) to cover the cost of administering the election. Vote online or in the Wise Center lobby, where we will have a voting table set up to help you through the process. Look for the voting table before and after Friday night services, during Sunday School, and at various other events.
More information and step-by-step instructions can be found here, or at Wise Temple throughout the election. If you have questions or would like to help Wise Temple Vote Reform, please contact us.
