The Episcopal Diocese of New York condemned recent calls by the Anglican Communion to divest from Israel. At a news conference July 20 in Manhattan, Episcopal Bishop Mark Sisk joined Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, executive vice president of the New York Board of Rabbis, in calling “to invest, not divest.” “Now is the time to invest both in Israel and Palestine, not only our capital, but also programmatic funding to end the familiar and deeply embedded pattern of violence,” Sisk said.
