MERCAZ Olami is the Zionist organization of the worldwide Masorti/Conservative Movement. We promote and support Zionist education, Israel programs and aliyah in our movement and work to enhance the quality of Jewish life in Israel. We believe in the centrality of Israel in the life and consciousness of the Jewish People and the unity of the Jewish People wherever they may live.
MERCAZ represents the interests of Masorti/Conservative Judaism in the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish Agency for Israel and Keren Kayemeth LeYisrael (the Jewish National Fund). We are the advocate and the force that guarantees funding for religious streams that is so crucial to our Movement.
MERCAZ links Jewish communities throughout the Diaspora together with Israel through tourism, Jewish education, study of the Hebrew language, “people-to-people” partnerships, short-and long-term Israel programs and Aliyah.
