Rabbi Josh Levy on UNESCO’s Jerusalem resolution

Following a UNESCO resolution on holy sites in Jerusalem, Rabbi Josh Levy, Co-Chair of the Assembly of Reform Rabbis UK said: “There is a strong historical Jewish connection to what we call the Western Wall and Temple Mount,  just as there is a strong Muslim connection to the Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif. Using this holy site as a political football is not helpful for the cause of peace; doing so fuels extremist voices on all sides of the conflict. A peaceful solution must include recognition of our shared connections to these holy places.”
