Press Releases and Statements
This week, we will join 20,000 fellow Jews in Washington, DC for the annual AIPAC policy conference. And this year, as in prior election years, the leading presidential candidates—Donald Trump among them—will take the stage to address pro-Israel advocates from across the country.

Calls for Swift Implementation of Kotel Deal
NEW YORK - Today marks an historic moment as the Israeli governing Cabinet has approved a proposal to create a permanent space for pluralistic and egalitarian prayer at the Kotel (Western Wall). This space will accommodate all forms of prayer and marks the first time that Israel has enacted a law in support of an egalitarian prayer space at a Jewish holy site, thus conveying official government legitimacy on religious streams other than Orthodoxy. Twenty-five years in the making, the decision brings us measurably closer to the simple, basic fact that there is more than one way to be Jewish and that there should be "One Wall for One People."
