The Rabbinical Council of America, the leading membership organization of Orthodox rabbis in North America, congratulates President Elect Joseph Biden on his election as the 46th president of the United States and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris who will be the first woman and woman of color to hold the office of Vice President. The RCA celebrates the record number of voters who participated in this year’s elections.
Rabbi Daniel Korobkin, president of the RCA, said “We are living at a time of great divide and during a period of increasingly hostile rhetoric. We all must now heed the call of Mr. Biden to work together, from the multiple branches of government to the street, to heal the many critical divisions and to find ways to increase cooperation and further mutual respect in speech and deed.”
Rabbi Binyamin Blau, vice president of the RCA, said, “Every Shabbat we pray for the welfare of the leaders of our country. We now pray for the success of the Biden administration and the president-elect so that they may formulate and execute policies that promote domestic and international security, economic and social welfare, and a society in which all its people can live with fairness and respect. We look forward to Mr. Biden’s continued support for a strong and safe State of Israel, America’s strong and vital ally.”
