Please see the update below from JFNA on the successful passage of funding for the Iron Dome missile defense system 420-9. We are grateful to House leadership for scheduling the vote so soon and to all of our central Virginia house members who supported the bill and help maintain the vast bi-partisan support for Israel in Congress. Along with JFNA, we emphasize, “although a vocal minority in Congress seeks to deligitimize Israel, it does not represent the values of the vast majority of Americans.”
"Today's bipartisan House vote overwhelmingly approving emergency funding to Israel's defensive #IronDome system is a powerful display of the unbreakable bonds between the US and Israel," Jewish Federations President and CEO Eric Fingerhut said.
"It's a reminder that although a vocal minority in Congress seeks to delegitimize Israel, it does not represent the values of the vast majority of Americans. The Jewish Federations thank each and every one of the 420 members who supported this legislation."
