LJY-Netzer, the youth movement of Liberal Judaism, is committed to the principles of Tikkun Olam, Reform Zionism and Liberal Judaism. We believe that Israel should be a ‘light unto other nations’ and should seek to uphold the statement in its own Declaration of Independence that Israel will be ‘based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture’. Our support for the UK Task Force is connected to our hope of furthering equality and justice within Israel.
‘To be a responsible Zionist is to believe and work for a just and moral Israel. Being a member of the UK Task Force demonstrates our desire and commitment to playing an active part in the evolution of the state of Israel.’
