Statement on David Friedman, Nominee for US Ambassador to Israel

TORA, the umbrella organization of traditional Orthodox American rabbis, joins with many others who know of the integrity and competence of David Friedman, President Trump’s nominee for US Ambassador to Israel. We share his core values of respect for human life, for the importance of Israel in the lives of Jews, and his dedication to the United States as a world leader. We are offended by those who imply that there is any white space between his values and those traditionally of the Jewish people.
