Annexing the Jordan Valley: URJ Responds to PM Netanyahu's Announcement

New York, NY; September 10, 2019 - Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President, Union for Reform Judaism, issued the following statement:

“We are very concerned by the Prime Minister’s press conference today calling for immediate annexation of the Jordan Valley and parts of the West Bank. These are unilateral moves endangering Israel as a Jewish and democratic state and further limiting the possibility of a two-state solution. Such serious pronouncements don’t belong in the final week of a heated campaign.”
