Supreme Court's Liberal Jews Skeptical in Jerusalem Case Staff
Posted: Nov 04, 2014 9:21 AM

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Zivotofsky v. Kerry, involving a U.S. citizen born in Jerusalem who wants his passport to list "Israel" as the country of his birth. Currently, U.S. citizens born in Jerusalem--anywhere in Jerusalem, even within the "Green Line" under full Israeli control after 1949--do not have any birth country listed, in spite of a 2002 federal law requiring "Israel" to be listed.
