On Wednesday, April 13, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) delivered brief remarks at an open house hosted by the Jewish Federation of Cleveland in our nation’s capital. The event allowed Portman to share his stance on Israel and other issues important to the Jewish community.

“Israel is a trusted ally of the United States in a region where steadfast friends are rare,” said Portman. “I believe it is in the strategic interest for the United States to remain an unshakable ally of Israel, and I look forward to working side by side with Joyce (Executive Director Joyce Garver Keller of the Ohio Jewish Communities) and groups like the Jewish Federation of Cleveland to ensure that happens.”

Last year, Portman had an opportunity to meet with both President Peres and Prime Minister Netanyahu in Israel to discuss the challenges of providing a safe nation in an area where security and safety are never taken for granted.  Senator Portman has been fully committed to a close and friendly relationship with Israel.
