But Our Heritage
WHO WE ARE
Am Echad is not an organization. Rather, it's a group of concerned Orthodox community members from the United States who have taken upon themselves to raise awareness of the deep emotional, spiritual and economic connection that America’s Orthodox Jewish community shares with their brethren in Israel. The love of the land, the love of its people and the support of its contributions to the betterment of mankind across the globe.
Am Echad delegates meet with Israeli politicians, business leaders and citizens to focus on their common interests and foster feelings of unity.
AM ECHAD MISSION
Am Echad's goal is to communicate. To bring people of diverse backgrounds, different levels of observance, varied ideologies,to one table to talk and to discover that despite the things that may divide them, the things that unite them are much deeper and more real than previously believed.
Am Echad encourages sharing of, and listening to, different viewpoints with the objective of inspiring frank expression of ideas.
Am Echad: Because We Are One Nation; One Family; One Israel.
