What is VCI?
Why should I become a Virtual Citizen of Israel™?
Declaring your pride as a Virtual Citizen of Israel™ affirms your commitment to the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish democratic state. By becoming a VCI, you can identify as a member of the global community dedicated to the concept, history and reality of Israel.
You will become acquainted with aspects of life in Israel, the dynamic of the People of Israel scattered throughout the world, environmental issues related to Israel and the many other aspects of Israel’s multi-dimensional reality. Virtual Citizens will be encouraged to engage in discussions related to the history of Israel that remains relevant today. Such connections fortify the meaning of Israel for people from every faith, race and country.
Why is VCI important?
This innovative form of engagement with Israel is not determined by one’s involvement in advocacy programs or pro-Israel events. Rather, it lends a deeper meaning to such activities by announcing your identification with Israel so that her existence and contributions throughout history cannot be taken for granted.
Uniting Virtual Citizens around the world will serve as a demographic demonstration of the support for Israel that is spread throughout the world. The international body of Virtual Citizens will serve as representatives of Israel in their home communities by demonstrating their commitment to the continued existence of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.
