Words of the Week: Rabbi Jonathan Blake et al.

“We do not condone efforts to undermine the pillars of a robust and longstanding democracy in Israel. Americans and Israelis have each seen firsthand how political extremism can divide a nation. Regrettably, Rep. Bowman’s anti-Israel views continue this extremist trend and only stoke further tension and conflict. We need to bridge divides to help achieve peace, not inflame tensions with baseless attacks and one-sided policy prescriptions.”
