Statement on Yachad

“We welcome the Deputies’ clear decision to accept the recommendation of its constitutional committee by a two-thirds majority.

“While self-evidently some do not agree with this decision, we urge everyone to accept the decisive outcome of the democratic process and to move ahead now with the job of representing the full range of interests and voices of the Jewish community to the outside world. This vote is about inclusiveness and does not change the Board’s attitude to Israel.”
