I’m delighted to share the news that, last night, the Livingston Township Council voted 5-0 in favor of a resolution condemning the international anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement. Livingston is the first community in the Greater Metrowest Jewish Federation to adopt an anti-BDS resolution. Edward Meinhardt and Shawn Klein, Council members who are also Temple members, were enthusiastic supporters of the motion, and Temple members (and father and daughter) Mark Schonwetter and Isabella Fiske were among those who spoke.
The resolution itself is below. I hope other area towns quickly follow Livingston’s lead!
