Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton joined with a bipartisan coalition of Senators to urge the United Nations to grant general consultative status to the Jewish National Fund of the United States. The Senators urged them to vote in favor of granting this status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
“This letter sends a strong message to the key United Nations committee that we support granting the same access to the Jewish National Fund as others around the world enjoy.
