Language added to the measure stated that the vote “does not mean an alignment with the overall strategy of the global BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanctions) movement.”

“Divestment is not the end, it’s the beginning of non-violent means to fight the oppression of our Palestinian brothers and sisters,” said Ruling Elder Rick Ufford-Chase.

The vote was applauded by Jewish Voices for Peace, who called it “a turning point.”

“This decision will have real consequences,” a statement from the group continues, “sending a message to Palestinians that the ongoing violations of their human rights is worthy of action on the global stage, and to companies and the Israeli government that the occupation is both morally and economically untenable.”
