The Presbyterian Church (USA) is “committed more than ever” to working with the Jewish community after its vote to divest from companies doing business with Israeli security forces in the West Bank.
“We believe that being in relationship with the American Jewish communities in authentic ways are central to our Christian values and our shared religious history,” leaders of the church said in an open letter published on its website on Thursday.
“We recognize the hurt that these decisions have caused,” the letter said. “We ask that you remain open to us as we participate with you in all our shared spheres of interfaith relationship: our houses of worship, our shared neighborhoods, our workplaces, and even our interfaith families.”
