Jewish Leaders Recommend Resolution Using ‘Judea and Samaria’ over West Bank

Israel NRB

Jewish leaders recommend resolution using ‘Judea and Samaria’ over West Bank.

The term West Bank was used by Jordan for a couple decades in the 1900’s.  It is the area the formerly was known as Judea and Samaria.

Some Jewish leaders are recommending that the terms for those areas be the former terms before Jordan oversaw the land.

The president and CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB), Troy Miller, has endorsed a resolution opposing using the term “West Bank” and Judea and Samaria instead.

“NRB opposes the use of the erroneous term ‘West Bank’ to describe the biblical heartland of Israel and calls on its members to refer to the region by its historic name of Judea and Samaria,” the resolution, which was endorsed on Wednesday evening at the annual NRB convention, reads.

The resolution was prepared as a collaboration between Israel365, The Israel Guys, and the Israel Allies Foundation, with the encouragement of the broadcasting network. NRB has over 1,100 member organizations that reach millions of viewers, listeners, and readers.

This resolution was discussed today in Nashville, Tennessee.

Terms are very important.
