WHEREAS, California is home to the largest Israeli population in the United States, including first- and second-generation immigrant families, and home to the largest Israeli population outside of the State of Israel; and
WHEREAS, Israeli Americans have historically been subject to multiple forms of discrimination, including anti-Semitism and national origin discrimination, and desire, like all immigrant communities, to connect with their culture and celebrate their heritage free from bigotry and bias; and
WHEREAS, Israeli Americans contribute invaluable skills that strengthen the California economy and share their heritage with California’s culture and heritage; and
WHEREAS, The contributions of Israeli Americans in the fields of astrophysics, mathematics, chemistry, aerospace engineering, biotechnology, agriculture, and internet technologies have been invaluable to the State of California; and
WHEREAS, Israeli-American technology entrepreneurs and startups have brought significant advancements to some of the most high-profile technology companies across California, from Silicon Valley to Silicon Beach; and

Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, That the Assembly, in honor of the multitude of contributions that Israeli Americans have made to make this a better country and state for all people, affirms that the Israeli-American community has contributed immensely to California’s society and culture, and condemns any act of national origin or other forms of discrimination that serve to marginalize or disenfranchise members of this community; and be it further
