What is AFJS?

Mission Statement

American Friends of Judea and Samaria (AFJS) is a non-profit educational organization 501(c)3 dedicated to increasing knowledge, and sharing the truth about the Israeli communities of Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan valley to the general public. We also provide our communities with assistance and strategic planning to support humanitarian initiatives, agricultural projects, and more, in order to benefit the residents of this area, which we consider to be Israel's historic and modern-day heartland.

Our Vision

We recognize the manifestation of the return of the Jewish people to their ancestral Homeland, living in safety and security. We believe that Judea and Samaria should be fully sovereign parts of the Land of Israel through the complete application of Israeli law in these regions of the country. We feel that the Jewish People have the right to dwell in these areas, as they do in every other part of the country.

AFJS Objectives

Support the pioneering spirit and strategic planning for development in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.
Safeguard Israel’s strategic expanses – between the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.
Ensure the right to the Land by strengthening Israeli settlement in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.
