Tuesday, August 4 at 1PM ET, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will join Federations and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations on a live video webcast to discuss the Iran nuclear agreement. Interested participants can register here. Federations join Israeli leaders in denouncing the terrorist attack on a Palestinian family that resulted in the murder of an innocent toddler. They also condemn the attack that left six injured during Jerusalem’s annual gay pride parade. Federations’ top Washington, D.C. advocate writes that for all the progress that has been made in the 25 years since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, much more work remains to be done. Federation campaign chairs and directors from 35 communities participated in a mission to Israel and Tbilisi, Georgia.
