B’nai B’rith International was featured in the Jerusalem Post, rebuffing an anti-Israel resolution passed at the annual J Street conference.

As detailed in the article, J Street leadership encouraged conference attendees to ask whether Jewish fund-raising reached West Bank settlements, and separately to replace maps of Israel in Jewish institutions with maps that clearly delineate the West Bank.

Read excerpts of the response from B’nai B’rith International, below:

J Street came under fire Sunday after opening its fifth annual conference in Washington over the weekend with a call for Jewish organizations to distinguish between Israel and the West Bank, including in fundraising.


Several American Jewish organizations also came out strongly against J Street’s call, including B’nai B’rith International, which said: “We totally disagree. In essence this is a call for a boycott, which is destructive for the prospect for peace.”
