Founded in 1897, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) played a key role in the Jewish State’s re-establishment. Today, ZOA is the leading major American Jewish organization courageously defending Israel and the Jewish people; fighting against all forms of antisemitism, including anti-Jewish boycotts; and promoting the Jewish people’s lawful right to live in and settle historic Jewish lands. ZOA exposes that a Palestinian state would endanger Israel’s existence; presents the facts about the Arab/Islamic war against Israel; and combats the anti-Israel lie that Israel is an “occupier” of her own land. ZOA spearheaded long, successful battles to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, to obtain U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, to deport Nazi war criminals, to apply federal civil rights protections to Jewish students, and more.  ZOA provides free legal assistance and programs to pro-Israel students at numerous college campuses. ZOA’s bold, unapologetic voice has a significant impact on public discourse and policy.



Always on the front lines of pro-Israel activism, ZOA has made its mark.
