UCC church to divest over Israeli treatment of Palestinians

Published Jun 30




Separately, the Episcopal Church, meeting in Salt Lake City, was considering a divestment resolution.

Whole new New York City — The top legislative body of the United Church of Christ voted Tue to divest from companies with business in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories, in a sign of the growing momentum of a USA protest movement against Israeli policy.

The denomination’s General Synod endorsed the action on a vote of 508-124 with 38 abstentions during its meeting in Cleveland.

The liberal Protestant group is the latest to take such action. Last year, the Presbyterian Church voted to sell stock in a few companies whose products are used by Israel in the territories. The United Church of Christ resolution was broader.
