J Street roots our work in a commitment to and support for the people and the state of Israel. Our mission highlights our desire for Israel to be a secure, democratic national home of the Jewish people which guarantees equality for all citizens.
“Our Israel” is a J Street initiative to spotlight amazing Israeli organizations and individuals who share our values and who struggle, as we do in the United States, to build and preserve a liberal, democratic society underpinned by the principles of equality, freedom, justice and peace. These leaders, advocates and organizations work tirelessly to build a better future for all of Israel’s citizens and for their Palestinian neighbors. They are on the front lines of the struggle to build a society that lives up to the founding values and ideals enshrined in Israel’s Declaration of Independence.
We’re hoping that, by introducing you to these champions – as well as the common challenges we face and the shared vision we’re striving for – we can inspire you to join us in this important work.
