The 2022 Annual Assessment

Main Recommendations to the Government of Israel

  1. Dialogue with Jews who support the Democratic Party must be deepened in order to harness their support and assistance in advancing Israel’s positions on the Iran nuclear issue.
  2. Diaspora communities (with the assistance of Israel) should prioritize significant Jewish education projects – financially, socially, and institutionally.
  3. Philanthropy in Israel, by both individuals and institutions, should be encouraged, emphasizing the Jewish value of giving as is customary in Diaspora communities worldwide.
  4. A comprehensive social and political response must be formulated to an expected increase in the number of Israelis who belong to the Jewish majority population but are not recognized as Jews.
  5. Continued rapid growth of the ultra-Orthodox community requires intra- and extra-sectoral attention to the socioeconomic ramifications of this trend.
