Statement on Israeli Embassy's Participation in J Street Conference

October 20th, 2009

J Street still looks forward to receiving a direct response from Ambassador Oren to our invitation to speak at the conference.  We believe the Government of Israel will be missing an opportunity should it choose not to engage with the over 1,200 pro-Israel activists who will be in attendance at the J Street conference next week.  The invitation to address the conference's participants remains open, and we look forward to working with the Embassy to secure Israel's future as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people.
