ADL Supports J Street Joining US Conference of Presidents


secret vote on whether J Street, a far-left American Jewish lobbying group, will join the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations is set to be held on Wednesday afternoon in New York.

Abraham Foxman, director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), on Tuesday indicated his support for the group. “We will support the admission of J Street not because we agree with them, not because we support their views, but in order to ensure the integrity and credibility of American Jewish advocacy and of the Conference of Presidents," remarked Foxman.
