Amidst recent news reports and commentary on the merits and likelihood of the United States possibly moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, AJC CEO David Harris has issued the following statement:

“Of course, the U.S. embassy ought to be in Jerusalem, Israel's capital. There is an anomaly in Israel being the only country in the world whose capital is not recognized by the international community. That said, such a decision today is not without its challenges, and any American administration will need to weigh the issues carefully in choosing the appropriate time to make the move.”
