Senate confirmation of Justice Kagan hailed by NJDC, ADL

WASHINGTON, DC  (Press Release)- National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) Chairman Marc R. Stanley released the following statement in response to today’s Senate confirmation of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States:

“The National Jewish Democratic Council heartily applauds the Senate’s vote to confirm Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. She brings with her unique personal and professional qualifications and a deep commitment to upholding our constitutional values.

As American Jews, we are particularly proud to see a member of our community rise to such an important position. We also take note that her confirmation marks a historic moment; for the first time ever, three women are seated on the Court at the same time. Kagan is a welcome addition to a Court that has become increasingly divided in support of the conservative agenda. We thank President Barack Obama for making this outstanding nomination and we commend the Senate for quickly and clearly voting for confirmation.”

Meanwhile, Robert G. Sugarman, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:

“We extend our congratulations and best wishes to Solicitor General Elena Kagan on her confirmation as the 112th Supreme Court Justice and the fourth woman to sit on the high court.
“Ms. Kagan is well qualified and we are confident that she will serve with distinction as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court. We commend the President and the U.S. Senate for choosing and supporting her.”
