New York, NY, September 21, 2022 – In response to the powerful remarks delivered by President Joe Biden at the 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, the American Jewish Congress applauds the President for his leadership, his declaration of unity, and his call to action that addresses threats challenging global peace and security. 
 
Delivered to a floor audience consisting of countless heads of State, Ambassadors, and global influencers, including American Jewish Congress President Jack Rosen, President Biden highlighted the need to secure a free and just world for all. When discussing Israel, the President reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to safeguarding the security of the Jewish State, the need for global understanding and recognition of the Holocaust, and the protection of Human rights for Jewish and global citizens alike. On the topic of Iran, the President reassured any in question, that the policy of the United States and his international colleagues must be clear – Iran can never and will never be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon.
 
The American Jewish Congress thanks President Biden for his leadership, his true friendship with Israel and the Jewish community. We remain ready to support those efforts, to ensure that his words translate into the actions this world needs most.
