World Herut, a member organization of the World Zionist Organization, has announced that it has launched its second new branch in the last six months with the establishment of Herut India.
“The need for the ideas of the great Zionist leader, Ze’ev Jabotinsky has perhaps never been greater in the Diaspora in the last 50 years than now,” said Karma Feinstein Cohen, the Executive Director of World Herut. “World Herut sees the utmost importance in bringing the tribes home; meaning the ingathering of all the Jewish People, of our sisters and brothers from the four corners of the earth. We are all part of one united Jewish People. Herut has launched its newest branch in India and we are absolutely ecstatic.”
“We cannot thank and praise the fantastic leaders of Herut India enough,” said Karma Feinstein Cohen. “Warm congratulations to Rivka Reis who brought together Jews from across India and recruited many new Herut members. Her commitment to Zionism and the Jewish People is unbelievable. We look forward to building a strong Zionist movement in India.”
Last month it was announced that Herut Mexico is now active and on Twitter. Herut Mexico is the second Herut branch in Latin America joining Herut Argentina.
Herut candidates from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Argentina won seats in the World Zionist Congress that convened virtually last month. Would Herut was founded in 2000 and in February 2002 was accepted into the WZO as one of the nine Zionist World Unions. Herut’s world headquarters is in Israel and Herut maintains branches in 11 additional countries.
“Herut India is the newest branch of Herut’s movement of “unapologetic Zionists.” We have families involved with Herut in both the north and the south of India as well as from emerging Jewish communities,” said Rivka Reis. “We wish to promote Zionism in order to bring about a deeper sense of love and belonging to Eretz Yisrael.”
Herut is an international movement for Zionist pride and education and is dedicated to the ideals of pre-World War Two Zionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky and more about Herut can be found at https://herutna.org/
