Pro-Zion is the UK Zionist movement for Progressive Judaism, supporting the growth of Progressive Judaism in Israel, specifically in their work to gain equal recognition and funding from the government and to create a more pluralist, democratic and tolerant Israel. In addition we support Israel and Zionist activity in Progressive communities in the UK by organising, sponsoring and publicising events for Progressive communities. All our work is centred on our Progressive Zionist values.
How we work
Affiliated to both the Liberal and Reform Judaism movements we boast over 1000 members. In a nutshell our aims are: To support Progressive Judaism and communities in Israel and help them in their fight for plurality and democracy. To support and promote Israel and Israel activities in UK Liberal and Reform synagogues. Find out more about our UK Activities, or visit our synagogue pages.
Through our affiliation and close ties with the Zionist Federation in the UK and also Arzenu the World Progressive Zionist Organisation we gain a voice in Israel putting our views forward in campaigns such as civil marriage, equal funding for progressive communities and conversion issues.
