New York, NY, March 27, 2023... ADL (The Anti-Defamation League) ADL joined with The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, the American Jewish Committee, and the Jewish Federations of North America in Issuing Statement on Israel’s Judicial Reforms:
“We welcome the Israeli government’s suspension of legislative consideration of judicial reform measures.
The last three months have been painful to watch and yet a textbook case of democracy in action. We respect the political leaders, business executives, community activists, cultural figures, and ordinary Israelis who took to the streets, exercising their love of country, and their passion for democracy.
As a next step, we encourage all Knesset factions, coalition and opposition alike, to use this time to build a consensus that includes the broad support of Israeli civil society.
The Conference of Presidents, the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, and the Jewish Federations of North America will continue to confer with Israel’s governmental and civic leaders on issues of mutual concern.”
