OU Statement On Extension of Negotiations with Iran

24 Nov 2014

Today, the leadership of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, the nation’s largest Orthodox Jewish umbrella organization, issued the following statement in response to the extension reached in Vienna between the “P5+1” and the Iranian regime:

“The Orthodox Union is concerned about the extension given to the negotiations process between the P5+1 and Iran regarding Iran’s nuclear weapons capability, but recognizes that an extension is preferable to signing a bad deal that would endanger Israel and the Middle East. We trust that this extension will enable the negotiators to obtain an agreement that will preclude —now and forever — Iranian nuclear weapons capability.”
