Jewish Federations Meet with Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid

Representatives from the Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations met with Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid in New York. In a joint statement, the organizations shared:

We were honored to meet with Prime Minister Yair Lapid, and grateful that he prioritized meeting with leaders of the North American Jewish Community ahead of his address to the United Nations General Assembly. In our meeting, we discussed important issues such as rising antisemitism around the world and the threat of Iran, about which we are mutually very concerned. We are heartened by his shared commitment to strengthen Israel-Diaspora relations, and look forward to continuing our close collaboration with the Israeli government on issues of common importance with the North American Jewish community.
