Religious Zionists of America

The Religious Zionists of America (Modern Orthodox Jews who identify with Religious Zionism and support the goals of the general Mizrachi movement in America, Europe and Israel.

Most rabbis affiliated with Modern Orthodoxy's Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), who are mostly alumni of Yeshiva University's (YU) Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) are active members and leaders in the RZA so that there is a strong correlation of leadership between YU, the RCA, Mizrachi in general, and the RZA.

The RCA works on common American Israel Public Affairs Committee, B'nai B'rith, United Jewish Appeal, the Jewish National Fund, the Simon Wiesenthal Center and others.

The President of the RZA is Rabbi Yosef Blau,[1] who also serves in the key position of mashgiach ruchani ("spiritual advisor") of students at Yeshiva University. RZA’s Executive Vice President that serves as chief executive for day-to-day operations is Alan A. Mond. His immediate predecessor was the late Israel Friedman[2] who is also the Executive Vice President Emeritus.[3]
