Celebrating Israel

Balfour Day With Israel Forever

November 2, 1917
Not just a day in history, but the first international recognition of our right to a national home in our ancestral land. Join us in celebrating one step toward the fulfillment of the thousands-year-old dream!

There are so many great ways that you can create a Balfour Day celebration for your community or group, or even just your family and friends!

  • Learn about the importance of the Balfour Declaration and how it celebrated in communities worldwide before the State of Israel was born
  • Party like its 1917! Hold a vintage Balfour celebration full of old photos, copies of the Balfour Declaration, and watch old videos of pre-State Israel. Not only will you be teaching about Balfour, you'll be exploring Jewish life and identity to a world who could only DREAM of a Jewish State, teaching today's generation how much we often take for granted.
  • Watch My Herzl and learn about the legacy of the father of modern Zionism, "architect of Balfour."  Discussion Guide available!
  • For a formal discussion, download articles and read them together, analyzing the significance of this historical event to modern Israel, modern Zionism, and our lives today

We aim to collect 1 million signatures by the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration on November 2, 2017 to be presented to world bodies, organizations, and heads of state.
Together, we can show the world that the international recognition of the Jewish connection to Israel perpetuates all over the world today.
