The Israel Allies Foundation supports the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus in its leadership role within Congress and seeks to engage and interact interfaith leaders and organizations with this important body of lawmakers. Established in 2006 by then Rep. Dave Weldon, Rep. Trent Franks, Rep. Eliot Engel and Rep. Gene Green as the only bipartisan pro-Israel Caucus in the House of Representatives, the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus has spearheaded numerous pro-Israel initiatives in Congress. Not only has the Caucus been quick to condemn both political and physical attacks on the Jewish State, but it has sought to pre-empt initiatives designed to weaken Israel’s international standing and security.
This vital work is accomplished through cooperative initiatives and events and has led to briefings on pertinent issues, press conferences, and hosting interfaith events that highlight the Caucus’s legislative initiatives with leaders from around the country.
The Foundation addresses a range of issues, most of which are spearheaded by the Caucus. These issues include moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s united capital, addressing Iranian nuclear ambitions, making sure US funding does not go to terror connected entities, fighting against the delegitimization of Israel, and holding the UN and UNRWA accountable. These issues are gravely important as US foreign policy has strategic bearing on our country’s security.
The Israel Allies Foundation is working to support our members in Congress in their fight to keep America the strong, exceptional nation it has always been, by leading US support for our most loyal ally – Israel. We invite you to join with us!
