Today, the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of American, the nation’s largest Orthodox Jewish umbrella organization, praised the introduction of the bipartisan Zero Tolerance for Terror Act into Congress by U.S. Representatives Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) and Ted Deutch (D-FL).

Hundreds of rabbis, synagogue and community leaders from across the country gathered on Capitol Hill today—in the midst of Congress’ debate over the Iran nuclear deal—to call on Congress to reject the bad deal that paves a pathway to a nuclear-armed Iran. The rally was organized by the Orthodox Union and the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA).

During the meeting, the group discussed their concerns about the deal and encouraged the Senator to oppose the deal. Senator Cardin said he is giving the deal a lot of thought and expects to make his decision by the end of next week.
The deal allows the Iranian regime to emerge stronger and much harder to stop, when the terms of the deal end in 15 years.
