Cardinal Dolan was presented with the ADL Cardinal Bea Interfaith Award for his work in promoting Jewish-Catholic dialogue. In presenting the award, National Director Abraham Foxman referred to the Archbishop of New York as an "unambiguous champion of Jewish-Catholic relations" and said he has made "tremendous strides in bringing together people of faiths." The award was given during the ADL New York Regional Office’s annual Interfaith Seder where Catholic and Jewish middle school students come together to experience a traditional Passover Seder.
ADL welcomed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s comments clarifying his position on a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, the prime minister stated he wants a “sustainable peaceful two-state solution.”
"It is important to remember that under Prime Minister Netanyahu’s watch there’s been a significant effort by the Israeli government to integrate Israeli Arabs into the broader society, particularly by investing billions of shekels in improving education and employment opportunities for Israeli Arabs. Unfortunately, throughout the recent election campaign, there were too many extreme and divisive statements. We reiterate our call to Israelis of all political affiliations to work to heal these wounds and promote inclusion for all in Israel."

Mr. Foxman discusses how the Charlie Hebdo and Kosher market terror attacks still resonate, how Prime Minister Manuel Valls “reinforced the truth” in his dramatic speech following the attacks, and how our thanks to French leadership could translate into the necessary steps to ensure the safety of its Jewish community.
