The Federation has curated  a list of Websites where you can find out more about what your government does, and how to contact your leaders. It is also important to maintain knowledge of Israeli relations. Take a look at the Embassy of Israel to the U.S.

Advocate To Your Peers

Details

While advocating to political leaders will get your voice heard by the individual leaders, it is also effective to advocate to your peers.

Though the overall message may be the same, advocating to your peers is much different in its presentation and execution. We live in a country where each individual is allowed their own opinion and voice; how we use that voice can mean the difference between keeping your relationships in tact, or losing them.

Attend Events & Give Support

Details

Through the Heller Community Relations Committee, The Federation of Sarasota-Manatee offers programs throughout the year where you can learn about issues, offer support, attend a rally, engage with community leaders, and more.

Donate

Without the donation of advocates and other community members, programs like the Heller CRC wouldn’t be offered. Making a donation to The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee helps to support advocacy for Israel, and strengthens Jewish life and identity in our community.
