Call your Senator: Commemorate the Reunification of Jerusalem

In two weeks, June 7th will mark the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, the Jewish people’s historic and spiritual capital for over 3,000 years. Between 1948 and 1967, Israeli citizens of all religions and Jews of all nationalities were denied access to Jerusalem's Old City and holy sites, including the Western Wall. Immediately after reunifying Jerusalem, Israel abolished restrictions on the free exercise of religion for all people.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem's reunification, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) have introduced a bipartisan resolution (S.Res.176) that reaffirms support for “Israel’s commitment to religious freedom and administration of holy sites in Jerusalem" and commends the "mutually beneficial American-Israeli relationship.”


Thanks to AIPAC for the action alert.

To support the commemoration of Jerusalem's reunification:

1.     Call the US Capitol switchboard toll free at 844-801-9984, select “2” to choose to speak with your Member of Congress, and then enter your zip code.

2.      Tell your Senator: "My name is ________, and I’m a constituent of yours. I live in (hometown). I am calling to urge the senator to cosponsor S.Res.176, a bipartisan resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.”
