The 38th World Zionist Congress (WZC) will take place between October 20 – 22, 2020 in Israel.
As the successor gathering to the first Zionist Congress convened by Theodor Herzl in Basel in 1897, the WZC is the international “parliament of the Jewish people” and serves as the governing body of the World Zionist Organization (WZO). The Zionist Federation in each country represented in the WZO elects or designates delegates to the World Zionist Congress which is held approximately every five years.
As the Zionist Federation in the United States, the American Zionist Movement (AZM) fulfills this responsibility by conducting an election within the Jewish community in the US. This vote, based on slates of candidates submitted by approved Zionist groups for the purpose of determining the 145 US delegates, will be held during a seven-week period between the end of January and mid-March 2020. The Elections in the US are overseen by an “Area Elections Committee” established by the AZM under the rules of the WZO.
Further information on the elections, slates, candidates, registration and voting will be forthcoming throughout 2019.
