The American Jewish League for Israel was organized in 1957 by men and women of the highest standing in American Jewish life to support the people and the State of Israel. Their philosophy, which still guides us today, is that as American Jews we need to come together regardless of political, ideological, or religious beliefs, to work for the cause that we all share - support for the State of Israel. It is independent and dedicated to keeping its members informed and involved. The American Jewish League for Israel is not connected to any political party in Israel.
Our unique University Scholarship program awards qualified American students with partial scholarship grants toward a year of study at one of Israel's prestigious Universities. The purpose of the program is to foster Jewish spiritual and cultural values through the experience of living and studying in Israel and, at the same time, strengthen the ties that bind Jews in the United States to Jews in Israel so that upon returning to the United States, scholarship winners will be better able to communicate those ties to American Jewry.
