Orthodox Leaders Denounce Hundreds of Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist "Rabbis" promoting hate and anti-Israel sentiment

The Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce joined by the Igud Harabbanim, condemns the hateful comments promulgated by fringe Jewish groups against the work of the new government of the State of Israel. 

With antisemitism surging across the world, and peril on the rise to Jews everywhere, it is nothing short of shocking that a group of people who identify themselves to the world as Jewish leaders can move to inspire even more hate and anti-Israel sentiment. 
We are pained that a group of 330 people who style themselves as rabbis from the Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist movements, some of whom occupy prominent roles in major cities, pledged a boycott of elements of the incoming government of Israel. The plans to block members of the Government from “speak[ing] at our congregations and organizations… and participating in other fora across our communities,” will further the goals of our enemies across the globe.

Together with the over 1000 rabbis of the Orthodox Igud Harabbanim union, the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce calls for American support of the Israeli government across the board. Merely three years following the befriending of Israel by Arab nations, through the signing of the landmark Abraham Accords, American Jewish clergy have shamefully become those to condemn the Jewish State, battling it for the hearts and minds of American Jewry.
“It’s a disgrace to have clergy members, who are not recognized by the authentic Jewish Faith, pretend to represent the interest of the Jewish world,” said Duvi Honig, founder and CEO of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce “With friends like these, who needs enemies?”
