The People's Resolution of Reaffirmation
(Click to Sign)

The Invitation - Lift Up Your Voice Like a Trumpet

The state of Alabama has a long history of strong support for the state of Israel. In 1943, Alabama led the nation as the first, and possibly only, state in America to officially call for the establishment of the Jewish state and homeland. The unanimous joint resolution passed both state houses five years before Israel was reborn as a nation. In the 70 years since that initial resolution, the state of Alabama has continued to stand strong with Israel in times of aggression, and there is a deep commitment shared among the people of Alabama to stand with the state of Israel and honor her people.

If you share this sentiment, we invite you to join us in making a solemn declaration of that commitment by signing the following Declaration of Reaffirmation and Renewed Commitment!

The Declaration

This Declaration, and all signatures received, will be presented publicly to Alabama and Israeli dignitaries at the Historic "Alabama Celebrates Israel" Statewide Gathering March 25th, 2014, during the season of Purim (book of Esther), an account reminding us of hostile times and intentions, and our calling to respond in "such a time as this!"

When signing the declaration, you will receive a confirmation email with the unique count of your signature.
