“The hour is now” to demand the US move its embassy to Jerusalem, a prominent American Jewish activist stated at a historic event on Capitol Hill celebrating 50 years since the city’s reunification. 

“We made history today,” Mark Oliner, chairman of the New York-based Center for Righteousness and Integrity, proclaimed at an extraordinary event on Capitol Hill celebrating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.

Oliner stressed the overwhelming support demonstrated by US congressmen for an undivided Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish state.

Jerusalem must be declared the capital of the State of Israel and the US embassy must be moved immediately, he stated. Jewish activism in this effort must continue, he said, stressing that “the hour is now” and that otherwise, future generations will never forgive us.
