B’nai B’rith International President Allan J. Jacobs and Executive Vice President Daniel S. Mariaschin have issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith congratulates President Obama on his re-election.
As a Jewish humanitarian organization focusing on the safety and security of Israel, human rights, senior issues, and tolerance and diversity, B’nai B’rith closely followed the 2012 contest for issues important to Jews, domestically and globally.
Recent years have seen an increased level of contentiousness in Washington. In some cases, these enormous divides have interfered with the business of government. We hope the president and the new Congress can focus on the work of the country and put aside partisanship for the benefit of the nation.
We look forward to continuing to work with this administration, and with Congress, on issues that are critical to the United States and Israel.
As a nonprofit organization, B’nai B’rith did not endorse any candidate for president.
