Activities in Israel and Countering Antisemitism

Archive 2015 - 2020

The Department was established to strengthen Jewish-Zionist identity among Israelis. It has also been charged with positioning the World Zionist Organization as the international umbrella organization in the struggle against Anti-Semitism and manifestations of hatred against Jews and the State of Israel.

To counter the erosion in identification with Zionist ideals on the part of Israeli teenagers, coupled with a growing inclination on the part of some to leave the country, the Department has determined that the enhancement of public discussion on Zionism among Israelis shall be one of its major goals.

To further these goals, the Department oversees a number of bodies that operate a multiplicity of programs aimed at reinforcing Zionist values within diverse populations throughout Israel.
