Club Z

Mission: Our mission is to create a network of knowledgeable, articulate, and impassioned activists with a commitment to Zionism who advocate for Israel. We do that by providing a platform for today’s teens to grow into best people they can be and connecting them to the story of Israel and their place in that story.
