In Israel today, there is a struggle to forge our identity. There is a strong and well-financed movement to weaken the Country’s Jewish identity on one side, and a tendency to dilute its democratic principles, on the other. We believe that Israel was established to be the nation state of the Jewish people whereby the Jews achieve their right to self-determination after 2000 years of forced exile. We also believe that the Jewish state must be a strong democracy with protection for the human and civil rights of all its citizens.
The Institute for Zionist Strategies thus represents a unique response to the growing internal dissension within Israel. There is no other organization working to strengthen a strong Jewish identity in the framework of a vigorous democracy.
Creating greater awareness of the impending issues and working concretely to effect change is the only way to achieve these goals. We strive for a real and effective impact on public opinion and on government policy.
