“Jerusalem has been central to Jewish identity since it was established as the capital of the Jewish nation three thousand years ago,” said David Cape, chair of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, the advocacy group of the Jewish Federations of Canada. “Since the establishment of the modern State of Israel, Jerusalem has been home to Israel’s democratically elected parliament, independent supreme court and national government offices.”

“Acknowledging the centrality of Jerusalem for Israel and the Jewish people should not be subject to partisan differences,” said Cape.
