Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara Statement on Iran

As part of the Jewish Federations of North America, Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara (JFGSB) has forged one of the top ten philanthropic networks on the continent, helping to rescue millions of Jewish refugees across the globe, build the State of Israel and aid Jewish and non-Jewish vulnerable communities around the world.

That is why we join with other Federations in making our voice heard regarding the agreement with Iran.

We are hopeful that diplomatic efforts will prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, and we appreciate the hard work President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry and Under Secretary Sherman have put into crafting this agreement.


At the same time, we are concerned. Iran’s support for Hezbollah and Hamas, its human rights violations and its aggressive threats toward neighboring countries – including Israel – make the specter of a nuclear-armed Iran untenable.

President Obama and his administration have repeatedly said that any deal with Iran must shut down Iran’s uranium enrichment path to a weapon, cut off all four of Iran’s potential pathways to a bomb, and track Iran’s nuclear activities with unprecedented transparency and robust inspections throughout its nuclear supply chain. We agree. We urge Congress to give this accord its utmost scrutiny.
