Balfour Initiative

On November 2, 1917, the Jewish nation received public validation of our ancient hope for our return to Tzion and a state of our own.

The Balfour Declaration affirmed the right for the return of Jewish sovereignty in the ancient Homeland of Israel, the outcome of years of struggle by Jewish and Zionist leaders to return the Jewish People to their historic and indigenous land.

One of many steps toward statehood, the Balfour Initiative aims to highlight the history that led to this monumental international recognition, explore the events leading up to and following the declaration, and emphasize the valuable legacy of commitment, leadership, and activism in our fight against the widespread delegitimization efforts of today.
