Organizations Appeal to Supreme Court Over 'Jerusalem' Passport


The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has filed an amicus brief in Zivotofsky v. Kerry on Wednesday, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to allow American citizens born in Jerusalem to have their place of birth listed as “Israel” on their American passports.

“Americans born in Jerusalem should be able to identify their country of birth on their passport in the same way other American citizens born abroad may do. That is what Congress has mandated,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.
