Conference of Presidents Welcomes Opening of Georgian Mission in Jerusalem

New York, NY

. . . Arthur Stark, Chairman, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement:

“We welcome the Republic of Georgia’s announcement that it will open a mission in Jerusalem, becoming the eighth country to take this historic step. We hope that the opening of this cultural center is a prelude to the Georgian embassy in Israel being relocated to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people.

With Brazil having opened a trade office in Jerusalem recently, we look forward to more countries taking action to acknowledge the capital of the Jewish state.”


The Conference of Presidents is the central coordinating body representing 50 national Jewish organizations on issues of national and international concern
