The leader of America’s pro-Israel, pro-peace lobby explained to Jonathan Freedland why he felt the need to fund J-Street.

He told us why he thinks it is urgent to secure Israel’s future through peace and urges all Jews to support a broad and varied discussion about Israel, rooted in the values and principles of the Jewish people.
