Our Mission And Vision
Israel’s Voice, a U.S.-based nonpartisan 501 (c) (3) nonprofit educational and human rights organization, educates, promotes, and raises worldwide awareness about past, present, and future events related to Israel.
Founded in 2014, Israel’s Voice has long been instrumentally active in building a coalition of grassroots volunteers, leaders, and organizations.
Israel’s Voice, a natural outgrowth of our mission, was forged to expand our outreach and capabilities through multimedia and direct approaches.
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?
—Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14 Pirkei Avot
On May 14, 1948, these above words echoed poignantly, as the Jewish people embraced a 2,000-year-old dream – the return to their natural place of birth where their “spiritual, religious and national identity was formed.” A call went out to all world Jewry to rally and unite as one people and one nation to stand together in “the great struggle for the fulfillment of the dream of generations – the redemption of Israel.” With dignity and pride, the Jewish people raised their heads high, lifted their voices as one, and proudly declared their historic “self-evident right to be a nation, as all other nations, in their own sovereign State.”
After grave persecution and “in the midst of wanton aggression,” the Jewish children of Israel extended their hands in peace, welcomed the Arab inhabitants and all other races and faiths with full equal rights under the law, and called for their cooperation for “the common good of all.” These proclamations are forever ensconced in Israel’s Declaration of Independence.
Over 65 years later that Declaration has begun to ring hollow. The Jewish people are divided, and many have all but forgotten it now. Nations that once rejoiced in that pledge are hostile and threaten Jewish survival. Allies have unjustly singled out, demonized, and placed unyielding pressure on the children of Israel to forfeit their natural, historic, and legal right to national sovereignty, robbing them of their identity and endorsing the ethnic cleansing of them from their own land.
We too have a dream . . .
It is our dream to reclaim our pledge and revitalize with strength, rigor, dignity, and pride Israel’s Declaration of Independence. We aim to collectively reignite the same flames of passion that once unified and connected the Jewish people to the nation of Israel.
