Richard D. Heideman, President and Dr. Francine Stein, Chair, National Board of The American Zionist Movement (AZM) congratulate Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Kamala D. Harris on their Inauguration as President and Vice President of the United States.
We take special note of and appreciate the longstanding and active connection which President Biden has had with the American Jewish community and his decades-long relationship with the State of Israel and its leaders.
The important relationship between America and Israel has been marked by a strong and enduring friendship since the founding of the State of Israel. Support for Zionism has been bipartisan and transcends political divisions. We are confident this will continue from the White House to Capitol Hill during the Biden-Harris administration and in the new 117th Congress. AZM pledges full cooperation and assistance in ensuring meaningful dialogue across the spectrum of the American Jewish Zionist community designed to strengthen the unique and special US-Israel bond and common commitment to democracy, freedom and cherished shared values.
