As a House Foreign Affairs Committee member, Moskowitz works with his colleagues to further strengthen our special relationship with Israel and enhance our strategic relationships around the globe.
In his role as a Congressman, Moskowitz has supported initiatives that:
- Recognize Israel as America’s legitimate and democratic ally.
- Condemn antisemitism and expand education nationwide about the rise of antisemitism and the evil rhetoric that led to the Holocaust.
- Award the Congressional Gold Medal to American diplomats who took heroic actions to save Jewish people fleeing Nazi Germany.
The United States remains committed to Israel’s security and regional stability. Moskowitz supports continuing U.S. military assistance to Israel and keeping the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. As a staunch opponent of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, Jared will work to combat antisemitism in all its forms and strengthen economic, diplomatic, and military ties with Israel.
Moskowitz’s great-grandparents were killed at Auschwitz, and his grandparents barely escaped Europe before the war. Jared’s grandmother was part of the Kindertransport, an organized rescue effort of children (but not their parents) from Nazi-controlled territory that took place during the nine months before the outbreak of the Second World War.
