Israel’s prime minister pushed the Jewish Agency for Israel’s agenda in a meeting with Jewish federation officials Sunday. In the Sunday afternoon meeting with leaders of the United Jewish Communities federation umbrella organization, Ariel Sharon underscored the importance of investing in Israel, immigration to Israel, Zionist education, and strengthening Jerusalem, the Negev and the Galilee, according to UJC CEO Stephen Hoffman. Sharon’s message mirrors the agenda of the Jewish Agency for Israel, which currently is competing with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee for the federation system’s overseas funds.
