ADL welcomed the decision by Israel’s cabinet to establish a permanent and official space at the Western Wall for mixed gender prayer at Judaism’s holiest site. “This historic decision recognizes that Jews of every denomination now have a place to pray in a way which is most meaningful to them at Judaism’s most revered site,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO.
ADL and the European Jewish Congress (EJC) announced a partnership to cooperate on advocacy work within European Union institutions. This new collaboration will enable the League to have a greater impact on E.U. policies and programs through the relationships and standing of the EJC as the representative body of European Jews.
"These comments will not only serve to further embolden Palestinians seeking to attack Israeli civilians, but also undermine the global struggle against terrorism by making inappropriate distinctions and rationalizations."
Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO, from an editorial in The Jerusalem Post on remarks made by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon regarding Palestinian violence against Israelis.
Mr. Greenblatt reflects on the latest controversy that took place at a national LGBTQ conference in Chicago where pro-Israel voices were silenced. He also elaborates on when criticism of Israel is acceptable, and when it veers into anti-Semitism by referencing the current climate on U.S. college campuses.
