The Orthodox Union Advocacy Center is bringing a delegation of hundreds of Orthodox rabbis and synagogue leaders from across the country to Washington tomorrow, September 9 – the eve of Congress’ vote to disapprove of President Obama’s Iran Nuclear Deal – and will host a press conference calling on Congress to reject the bad deal that paves a pathway to a nuclear-armed Iran.
The press conference, just days before Rosh Hashanah, is reminiscent of the historic Rabbis’ March in 1943 – just days before Yom Kippur – in support of American and allied action to stop the destruction of European Jewry.
Following a recent meeting with President Obama, Nathan Diament, Executive Director of OU Advocacy, the public policy arm of the Orthodox Union, expressed concern to FOX New Channel’s Neil Cavuto that the deal still strengthens the Iranian regime. Mr. Diament is available to discuss the Orthodox Jewish community’s apprehension in greater detail.
