Our Vision

The Institute for Zionist Strategies, rooted in a National Liberal orientation, seeks to strengthen Israel as the nation state of the Jewish People by contributing to its historic development as a Jewish and democratic state.

'The Zman' Series:  

Tisha B'aV

We are pleased to announce the second volume in the Zman series, booklets of Zionist thought centered on the Jewish calendar. The booklets are the fruit of cooperation between members of HaMeorer (graduates of the Shiloach program of the Zionist Beit Midrash), the Menachem Begin Heritage Center, and the Ben-Gurion Heritage Institute.

We chose to dedicate this volume to the topic of Remembrance. In its pages you will meet Jabotinsky, Ben Gurion, Arlosoroff, Rachel Bluwstein, Agnon, Begin, Heschel, Meir Ariel, Heschel, Wislawa Szymborska, and many others.

The time has come to terminate the activity of UNRWA 

By Nir Amran

In the wake of the Protective Edge Operation, there is now an opportunity to bring about the termination of the Agency for Palestine Refugees.

The current situation, outlined delineated below, presents the international community with a window of opportunity to bring about the end of UNRWA's harmful activity in Gaza and Judea and Samaria, followed perhaps by similar actions in other countries in which it is active.

The Mikve Setup 

Administrative and Economic Aspects 


The Ministry of Religious Services and the local authorities in Israel operate 757 mikves (ritual baths) for women through the religious councils and religious departments in the various authorities. This study discusses various administrative and economic aspects of the mikve setup in Israel and points out several main findings:

1. The Ministry’s regulations are not enforced.

2. There is no uniform price even within the religious council, and each mikve charges a different price.

3. Inefficient management in the mikve departments.

4. Significant and unexplainable fluctuations in the income and expenses.

5. The information systems run by the Ministry of Religious Services lack much information.
