As the largest Jewish Movement in North America, we remain committed to a democratic and pluralistic Israel, and two states for two peoples. Accordingly, we emphatically and continually oppose all land acquisition by the Jewish National Fund (KKL) outside the sovereign borders of the State of Israel, known as the Green Line.
Within the globalized reality of life today, we need to develop the capacity of young Jews to be in cross-cultural conversations. Klal Yisrael is the laboratory for creating and sustaining a worldwide network of young Jews with a personal stake in strengthening the future of Progressive Judaism around the world.
Israel’s decision to bar U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering the country is wrong, full stop. Democracies do not hide; they can protect their security and well-being and also celebrate robust debate and engagement in the public square.
