JCER RESPONDS TO REPORTED CONTROVERSY OVER VIDEO

NEW YORK- Mik Moore, co-executive director of the Jewish Council on
Education and Research (JCER), released the following statement today with
regard to the film launched by the group this weekend, featuring seven
members of Israel's security establishment:

"In the film released this weekend by the Jewish Council on Education and
Research, retired members of Israel's security establishment express support
for Senator Barack Obama or his policies and provide relevant analysis.

The purpose of the film is to educate Jewish voters about support within
Israel's security establishment for policies Obama has advanced regarding
Israel. JCER is a non-profit organization created to develop and disseminate
information to voters in the United States regarding issues of concern to
the Jewish community.

The Israeli producers have assured us that all participants were fully
informed of the nature of the project. While JCER has endorsed Barack Obama
for President, neither the film, nor any of our subsequent remarks imply
that those interviewed are endorsing Obama's candidacy. This film is not an
advertisement and will not be used as an advertisement. We are willing to
work with the film's producers to address any new concerns now being raised
by any of the participants. "
