Support Security Assistance for Israel

On Sept.14, the United States and Israel signed a new, historic 10-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which pledges $38 billion in U.S. security assistance to Israel for Fiscal Years 2019-2028.

Please thank your senators and representatives who urged the administration to swiftly conclude the robust agreement.

Today, Israel faces an array of mounting threats stemming from the growing instability gripping the Middle East, requiring the Jewish state to significantly increase its defense expenditures. The United States must continue to help ensure that Israel has the resources to defend itself—by itself—against these threats.

Please urge your members of Congress to continue to support full funding—$3.1 billion—of security assistance to Israel this year in accordance with the current MOU.
