Conference of Presidents Congratulates Speaker McCarthy; Welcomes New Members of the 118th Congress

New York, NY – Dianne Lob, Chair, and William Daroff, CEO, of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement:

“The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations congratulates Congressman Kevin McCarthy on his elevation to Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. We have had the pleasure of working with Speaker McCarthy on issues of importance to the Jewish community since his election to Congress in 2007 and have always found him to be a dedicated and effective ally.

“Speaker McCarthy, a longtime friend of the Conference, has an outstanding record of fighting against antisemitism. We are confident that under his leadership, the House will continue to be a strong advocate for the security and well-being of the United States and its allies, including the State of Israel.

“We look forward to working with the new Speaker and Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries, who is also a longstanding friend of the Conference and a champion in supporting the strong relationship between the United States and Israel, as well as all the new House leadership on both sides of the aisle, to address the challenges facing our nation and build towards a brighter future for all Americans.”
