JERUSALEM – The World Jewish Congress on Monday enthusiastically welcomed the United States’ move of its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, calling it a “critical moment in history” and a “precedent worthy of emulation” by all of Israel’s allies.
“The United States, under the leadership of President Donald Trump, has once again demonstrated its unwavering support of the Jewish State of Israel with formal recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s rightful capital by relocating its embassy to its natural location,” said World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder.
“The World Jewish Congress is proud to witness this critical moment in history, and deeply appreciates the strong message that the United States is sending to the international community of the indisputable truth of the Jewish connection to Jerusalem. This is a precedent worthy of emulation, and we hope to see more of Israel’s allies follow suit," Lauder said.
“Thank you, President Trump."
