The Jewish Council for Public Affairs Reacts to Israeli Government Decision on Western Wall

New York-  The Jewish Council for Public Affairs, comprised of 16 national Jewish Organizations, including four major synagogue movements, and 125  local Jewish Community Councils, re-affirms the central value of Jewish unity and the unshakeable bonds that connect us to one another and to the State of Israel.

Many of our affiliated organizations are deeply troubled by the recent decision of the Israeli Cabinet concerning prayer at the  Western Wall, as are many individual Jews around the world. We look to the government of Israel to work collaboratively to find solutions to such problems that divide us, in ways that preserve our commitments to one another as a single, global, Jewish community.
