Israel Advocacy - Jewish Federation

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle strengthens connections between Jewish Puget Sound and Israel. The Federation advocates on behalf of Israel and a just peace by:

  • Gathering Jewish organizations together to share in advocacy programming, civil dialogue, and consensus building in our diverse community
  • Partnering with Jewish and non-Jewish allies to fight virulent anti-Zionism
  • Serving as a resource on Israel for the local media
  • Presenting the Jewish community consensus on Israel in Olympia
  • Serving as the Puget Sound region’s liaison with the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco

The Federation fosters greater awareness and appreciation for Israel’s historical and cultural heritage, its achievements in science, technology, business, and the arts, and for Israel’s tikkun olam aspirations, which have benefited humanity.
