The American Jewish Congress on moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem

Monday, May 14, 2018 - 1:47pm

The American Jewish Congress applauds the US administration for courageously enacting its historic commitment to relocating the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s rightful capital of Jerusalem. In the space of one week, America has twice reiterated its faith in Israel’s legitimacy, in words and deeds, and in doing so, it has set an important precedent for other states to follow. American Jewry is proud to have a government that is committed to standing with Israel and in defense of its rights like all sovereign nations.
