Chairman sayings

Greetings from the Head of the Center

 

 chairman

 

Dear Friends,

 

The World Zionist Organization's Center for Religious Affairs in the Diaspora has set itself goals designed to help Jewish communities in the Diaspora.

 

The Center encourages and nurtures the new generation of Orthodox rabbis with programs and religious services from Israel. It also holds seminars for rabbis on current affairs, as well as vocational training and conferences, initiates and promotes the establishment of Batey Midrash for women in the Diaspora, and runs the Ben Ami project for religious guidance in small Jewish communities in the Diaspora.

 

As befits this era of changes, it strengthens the connection between rabbis and communal or spiritual leaders, and the State of Israel and its Chief Rabbinate, in the hope that the latter two serve as a source of spiritual and national inspiration for the rabbis and leaders, as well as a global center of Halakhic ruling.

 

The Center attributes great importance to the positions and roles of community presidents and heads of Jewish organizations in light of the tremendous impact they have on shaping the Jewish character of their communities. The Center therefore promotes the increased involvement of community leaders in their congregations' spiritual lives, and more profound understanding between rabbis and presidents or other community leaders. It is the Center's main aim to bring Jews closer to Torah and Zion.

 

On this website you will find an overview of the Cebter's activities, publications and educational kits, as well as links to important sites.

 

Center for Religious Affairs in the Diaspora

 

Head of the Center: Rabbi Yehiel Wasserman

Director of the Center: Yitzchak Shtiglitz

 

The World Zionist Organization's Center for Religious Affairs in the Diaspora has set two main goals for itself:

 

  1. Fostering the connection with Jewish heritage, reinforcing Jewish identity, especially among youth in the Diaspora, and the bond with the Jewish people.

 

  1. Fostering the relationship with the State of Israel and underscoring its centrality in the life of Diaspora Jewry.

 

To achieve those goals in Orthodox Jewish communities across the globe and at community centers, the Center for Religious Affairs in the Diaspora holds widespread and diverse activities for the rabbis and leaders of the Jewish communities, who are Jewish community's secondary agents. The programs are also carried out with assistance from the religious shlichimdeployed in different countries, the "Ben Ami – ZorimZionut" shlichimof the Center for Religious Affairs in the Diaspora, and through the religious programs and services provided by the State of Israel.
