AZM works across a broad ideological, political and religious spectrum linking the American Jewish community together in support of Israel, Zionism and the Jewish people. AZM is composed of 29 national Jewish Zionist organizations representing the broad array of Zionist perspectives and, along with them, engages in a variety of philanthropic, educational and advocacy activities in support of Zionism.

A few months ago, I was shocked to hear these words from a fellow Brown University student. With a remarkable degree of ignorance about the history of the Holocaust and Jewish theology, he suggested that the Jews are so repulsive that we brought the Nazi genocide upon ourselves. He declared that Jewish religion and ethics are meaningless as long as Israel, which he regarded as the epicenter of global evil, exists. He had internalized a toxic culture of anti-Semitism and grown to resent Holocaust survivors, Zionists, and all who represented resistance to the mentality that he had chosen to adopt. People like him claim to speak for the whole of my generation, but they are a small minority of Jewish millennials.
