                                  Answer:
   
   The position of Reform on the state of Israel is made clear in the
   [5]1999 Statement of Principles
   ([6]http://www.ccarnet.org/platforms/principles.html):
     * We are committed to (Medinat Yisrael), the State of Israel, and
       rejoice in its accomplishments.
     * We affirm the unique qualities of living in (Eretz Yisrael), the
       land of Israel, and encourage (aliyah), immigration to Israel.
     * We are committed to a vision of the State of Israel that promotes
       full civil, human and religious rights for all its inhabitants and
       that strives for a lasting peace between Israel and its neighbors.
     * We are committed to promoting and strengthening Progressive
       Judaism in Israel, which will enrich the spiritual life of the
       Jewish state and its people.
     * We affirm that both Israeli and Diaspora Jewry should remain
       vibrant and interdependent communities. As we urge Jews who reside
       outside Israel to learn Hebrew as a living language and to make
       periodic visits to Israel in order to study and to deepen their
       relationship to the Land and its people, so do we affirm that
       Israeli Jews have much to learn from the religious life of
       Diaspora Jewish communities.
