Congress is set to vote in mid-September on the Iran nuclear agreement. The outcome of this vote is important to the security of the Western World, the Middle East in general and Israel in particular. The Israel Advocacy Committee has unanimously agreed that the agreement does not achieve the purpose for which it was intended, to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear weapon state.

The committee urges fellow congregants, no matter what their views, to be informed and be heard on this important matter.
