President Trump has nominated David Friedman to be the U.S. Ambassador to Israel. Mr. Friedman has long been an outspoken voice on Israel-related issues, advocating for policies that would alter decades of U.S. policy toward Israel. This includes his support for a one-state solution and financially supporting West Bank settlements. While Mr. Friedman moderated some of his positions during his confirmation hearing, we simply can’t accept that Mr. Friedman’s suddenly altered views replace a long and detailed record that he has on Israel, both in his stated comments and his philanthropy. For these reasons, the Reform Movement opposes Mr. Friedman’s nomination.
