ZIONIST ORGANIZATION OF AMERICA NEWS RELEASE ZOA Concerned: Biden Appoints Radical Israel-Basher, Sharon Kleinbaum, to U.S. Religious Freedom Commission Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein released the following statement: The ZOA opposes and expresses deep concerns about President Biden’s appointment of hostile-to-Israel Reconstructionist Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. In 1992, Kleinbaum became the spiritual leader of New York City’s LGBTQ synagogue, Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST). Kleinbaum has used her pulpit to propagandize against the Jewish state and create sympathy for enemies that seek to destroy Israel. In 2014, dozens of prominent CBST members quit CBST because of Kleinbaum’s obscene anti-Israel antics, including mourning and reading the names of Hamas terrorists during synagogue services. (Hamas’ charter calls for the murder of every Jew throughout the world. Hamas launched thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians and broke 10 ceasefires with Israel in 2014.) Kleinbaum then claimed that those people called terrorists were “children” aged 18 and under―while knowing full well that many Hamas terrorist operatives are 17- and 18-year-olds. A CBST gay Jewish activist wrote that Kleinbaum “bashes Israel all the time, making people get up and leave services. . . . She is very vocal in her hatred towards Israel.” Kleinbaum has also repeatedly sided with anti-Israel boycotters and demonizers, against the Jewish state. On Nov. 26, 2019, Kleinbaum tweeted that she was “so proud of those standing with [BDS activist and Israel-demonizer] Omar Shakir.” Kleinbaum called Shakir “one of the great voices of human rights” and asserted “Israel’s decision to deport him is a travesty.” Shakir heads the Soros-funded so-called “Human Rights Watch” (HRW) – which uses the guise of human rights to falsely defame Israel and Jews; accuses Israel of “war crimes”; compiles lists of Israeli-related companies to boycott; and lobbies for anti-Israel BDS and other actions against Israel at the UN, in Congress, and in other international forums.
