Conference of Presidents Welcomes New Israeli Government

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 congratulates Israel’s incoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as he was sworn in today for an unprecedented sixth time as Israel’s leader. Prime Minister Netanyahu, a longtime friend with whom the Conference has worked since the 1980’s, is deeply committed to the strength of the relationship between Israel and Diaspora communities.

“We look forward to working with Prime Minister Netanyahu to deepen the unbreakable bond between America and Israel, to counter the growing threat posed by Iran and its terrorist proxies, to advance the Abraham Accords and other normalization agreements, and to combat the scourge of global antisemitism. We will work closely with the new Israeli government, the Biden Administration, and the bipartisan Congressional leadership to advance our common strategic interests and to protect our shared values.

“We also salute outgoing Prime Minister Yair Lapid for his leadership and his deep friendship with American Jewry, and look forward to continuing to engage with him over the years ahead.”
