We, the signers of the Jerusalem Declaration, affirm that Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish People and the State of Israel. No other national, political or religious entity has an equally legitimate moral, political or historical claim to Jerusalem as its sovereign capital.
The eternal connection between Jerusalem and the Jewish people is unbreakable. In biblical times (11th century BCE), Jerusalem was established as the capital of Israel by King David. Ever since, there has been a formidable Jewish presence in the city whenever historically possible. The Jewish connection to Jerusalem has been overtly proclaimed throughout the centuries when Jews worldwide declare "Next year in Jerusalem".
We support free and open access to Jerusalem for all peoples and religions, under the sovereignty of the State of Israel, and reject returning Jerusalem's status to a divided city, such as existed between 1948 and 1967. During that time, Arabs controlled the eastern section of Jerusalem and forbade non-Muslims from access to holy sites in eastern Jerusalem, including the Western Wall and the Temple Mount.
We therefore want to thank Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, for their strong support in maintaining Jerusalem as a unified capital city under Israeli rule. We ask both Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Barkat, as representatives of the People of Israel, to continue to do everything in their power to maintain and strengthen a united Jerusalem for the benefit of the State of Israel, the Jewish people and the entire world.
We urge world leaders to recognize the unbreakable bond between the Jewish People and Jerusalem and to guarantee that Jerusalem remains the undivided capital of the state of Israel.
Signing this declaration will ensure that your name will be sent to Israeli officials, the White House, the US Congress and world leaders, and that you will get important updates from United with Israel and its affiliates.
