How often do we, as regular Jews, have an opportunity to make a real difference through our own actions? We do not have the wealth to influence organizations. We do not have the stature or the platform to influence communal thought. Living in America, we do not even have a vote in Israeli elections. And so, though we care deeply about Jews everywhere, and passionately care about our family and brethren in Israel, there is so little we can actually do to affect our concerns.
DURING THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS, EACH ONE OF US CAN MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE.
Every four years the delegates of the World Zionist Congress meet to determine policy and choose leadership of organizations that have an enormous impact on the lives and values of Jews around the world and in Israel. The organizations whose agendas and leadership are chosen by these delegates include the Jewish Agency, Keren Hayasod and JNF. These organizations have budgets of hundreds of millions of dollars, and the delegates make these monumental decisions every four years. These delegates are elected every eight years. Your vote over the next seven days will impact the next eight years!
YOU HAVE UNTIL APRIL 30 TO ELECT DELEGATES. YOU CAN INFLUENCE WHAT PORTION OF THE DELEGATES BELIEVE IN TORAH MiSINAI AND SHARE OUR TORAH VALUES. http://www.votetorah.org/
The non-Orthodox organizations have been pulling all stops to encourage their membership to vote for delegates who do not share our Torah values. The secular Jewish organizations are doing all they can to have their friends vote for delegates who advocate secular, non-Torah beliefs. But, their efforts are falling short. Voting during the current elections has dropped dramatically. It has dropped among the non-Orthodox and the secular, but has likely dropped among the frum, as well.
LOWER VOTING PARTICIPATION OF OTHERS MEANS YOUR VOTE IS PARTICULARLY POWERFUL.
In light of the unprecedented low voting numbers, this election provides a unique opportunity for the frum community to capture an particularly high percentage of the delegates. Your $10 voting fee will, therefore, translate into a return for frum causes of many, many fold the $10 investment. Rarely can you even imagine such a leveraged return on your modest financial investment in the needs of Klal Yisroel. Together we can change lives, increase Torah study and observance, and be Mekadesh Shaim Shomayim in a way that we, as private individuals, so rarely can.
