The State and people of Israel will win their current battle for survival only with the utmost support of American Jewry.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Union of American Hebrew Congregations encourages all congregations of the Reform movement in the United States and Canada, as a matter of conscience and responsibility, to demonstrate all-out support of the people and the State of Israel by strengthening its economic sinews and its humanitarian programs through the sale and purchase of State of Israel Bonds and by an active participation in raising funds for the United Jewish Appeal Joint Campaign.

We further urge and call upon our congregations to cooperate with both organizations by all manner and means, such as annual events, High Holiday appeals, or any other programs that will help to insure the viability and security of the State of Israel and the peace and security of its people.
