IN RESPONSE TO GLOBAL ANTI-SEMITISM AND ESCALATING SITUATION IN ISRAEL —
Yesterday, July 23, 2014, Agudath Israel sent an emergency delegation to Capitol Hill to meet with members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as well as House Foreign Affairs and Armed Services Committee together with other Congressional Representatives.

In addition, the delegation registered the American Jewish community’s deep concern about the rise in global anti-semitism and urged the officials to speak out forcefully about protecting Jewish communities across the globe.
