I’m the first Jewish woman to represent Florida in Congress. I’m a Jewish mother. And I wrote an op-ed today that’s in the Miami Herald, one of my home town papers that talks about my Jewish heart and how important this was to me that as a Jewish mother, that we have a concept of the l’dor vador — from generation to generation.

There’s nothing more important to me as a Jew to ensure Israel’s existence is there throughout our generations. And I am confident the process I’ve gone through to reach this decision is one to ensure Israel will be there forever. It’s the homeland of my people.

I’m an American citizen. And I believe fervently in protecting America’s national security interests and there is no way we would be able to ensure that better, than approving this deal and ensuring that Iran is not ever able to get access to nuclear weapons and we can shift our efforts with the rest of the world on going after their terrorist ambitions.

And most importantly I had the privilege of talking with President Obama last night who assured me that as we move forward and discuss with Israel the enhanced security package that will be essential for us to provide to Israel as well as ensure we tighten our ability to enforce this deal that I’d be part of a group of members in Congress that will be working with him and his administration on this. That’s critical for me.
