President Obama at Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations

Today, President Obama had a productive discussion with members of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.  He reiterated America’s unshakeable support for Israel’s security, opposition to any effort to delegitimize it or single it out for criticism, and commitment to achieve a peace that will secure the future for Arabs and Israelis alike.

The President  praised the core Jewish values of freedom and democracy, human rights, and tikkun olam (to repair the world).  He also acknowledged that those values extend not only to events in the Middle East, but to the challenges here at home, thanking the Jewish community leaders for their support to ensure that America continues to out-educate, out-innovate, and out-build the competition in order to win the future.
