J Street’s blog aims to reflect a range of voices. The opinions expressed in blog posts do not necessarily reflect the policies or view of J Street.                 

At J Street’s 2016 Gala, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and Member of Knesset Stav Shaffir delivered impassioned speeches supporting the two-state solution, lauding diplomacy-first foreign policy and thanking J Street for making the world safer.


Ultimately, when Joe Biden, John Kerry and Stav Shaffir come to dinner, you know it’s going to be great.
