There can be peace–but only if we reject extremism.

As the last remaining Jewish Member of Congress from New York, Jerry is a national leader within the Democratic party on all issues related to Jewish values, and especially Israel. Jerry has always been a strong supporter of a two-state solution and believes that both the Israeli and the Palestinian people possess the right to self-determination and security. He has consistently repudiated the extremism on both sides of the debate–Jerry has called on the Israeli government to adhere to democratic norms while vehemently condemning any rhetoric denying Israel’s right to exist.

Jerry has also been a singularly outspoken voice against pernicious antisemitism. He was among the first Members of Congress to take on the fight against BDS, has provided steady opposition to efforts to legitimize and expand the BDS movement within New York’s higher education institutions, and has led numerous Congressional resolutions rejecting antisemitism.
