TheWorld Zionist Congress (WZC), which most people have either never heard of or know little about, convenes every five years in Israel and last week concluded its first virtual session due to pandemic restrictions preventing global travel.

WZO victory achieved through ‘wall-to-wall’ coalition – opinion – The Jerusalem Post

| November 1, 2020

After two weeks of of headlines about a "hostile takeover of the World Zionist Organization" by the Right and the Orthodox, representatives of political parties, Jewish organizations and religious streams across the religious and political spectrum came together in Jerusalem last Thursday to sign a wall-to-wall coalition agreement.The signing ceremony brought together a cross section of the Jewish people, continuing the tradition of the WZO going back to the days of Theodore Herzl.Mizrachi's representative at the ceremony was Avraham Duvdevani, who has been following in Herzl's footsteps. He will leave his post as WZO chairman to become head of Keren Kayemet, both posts once held by the visionary Zionist leader.Even Herzl could not have dreamed that one day his successor would be a religious Zionist who wears a crocheted kippa. The truth is that even a decade ago, it would have been unimaginable that Mizrachi would take over such venerable institutions.This history happened not because of any back room deals in Jerusalem but because proud religious Zionists in the United States demonstrated their commitment to Israel's future by casting ballots for the Orthodox Israel Coalition in the American Zionist Movement's voting online from January to March

Anti-Semitism and What Feeds It – The New York Times

| November 1, 2020

There are leading left-wing political activists who claim that Israel is built on the idea that Jews are supreme to everyone else, implying that any form of Zionism, including progressive Zionism, is inherently sympathetic to white supremacy. But when a Jewish undergraduate is hounded off a student council (Impeach her Zionist ass, according to the social media campaign against her) she may understandably wonder whether the hoary equivalence of Zionism and racism hasnt become another pretext to target Jews.
