The Zionist Federation is 122 years old. When it was formed, Queen Victoria, Empress of India, still had two more years on the throne and Sunderland AFC were a dominant football force.

Having survived this long as the umbrella body for all UK Zionists, and with a track record of campaigning and cultural events celebrating Israel and Zionism, the Zionist Federation is determined to continue its path forward for the next one hundred years.

In the wake of new leadership being elected in the future and with the support of our superb Executive Director, Steve Winston, the current Zionist Federation is determined to ensure a strong, united, diverse and open body, able to advocate for Israel in the UK today, tomorrow and in a hundred years’ time.

We want the organisation that was handed the Balfour Declaration in 1917 to continue to be at the forefront of Israel advocacy. We are delighted with the support that we, as the current Zionist Federation steering committee have had from our National Council as we move forward.

As a Federation we represent the veritable broadband range of voices that encompass modern UK and Irish Zionism today. We are proud to be not just the ZF but the Zionist Federation of Great Britain. We no longer hide behind initials.

We may be small. We may be few in number but we are the Zionist Federation. For Israel. In the UK. Today. Tomorrow. Every day.
