Jewish Dems Welcome Creation of the Democratic Majority for Israel
Washington, DC – The Executive Director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA), Halie Soifer, responded to the establishment of the new organization, the Democratic Majority for Israel (DMFI), with the following statement:
“JDCA welcomes the establishment of the Democratic Majority for Israel. While our mission is distinct from DMFI’s, we welcome additional pro-Israel voices and look forward to working with DMFI to elect Democrats in 2020.
“JDCA is the only organization serving as the voice of Jewish Democrats, mobilizing the Jewish electorate to support Democrats who share our socially progressive and pro-Israel values. JDCA advocates for a values-driven agenda including, but not limited to, U.S. support of Israel. This past election, JDCA engaged more than half a million Jewish Democrats in a Get Out the Vote (GOTV) effort to elect House and Senate Democrats. We look forward to building on this work in 2020 to support Democrats who share our values.”
