Halie Soifer, the Executive Director for the Jewish Democratic Council of America, said in a statement that Rep. Meeks has a long history and strong record of supporting the US-Israel relationship, “and we are confident he will work with President-elect Joe Biden to restore American global leadership, including in the Middle East.”

“We are confident that Rep. Meeks will also work with a strengthened Biden Administration State Department to restore the importance of diplomacy and multilateralism as core tenets of US foreign policy,” Soifer added. “This is important to Jewish Americans, who want to see America work with our allies to confront global challenges such as COVID-19, climate change, and Iran’s nuclear development.”
