Gov. Bill Lee yesterday signed a resolution — SJR0058 — sponsored by state Sen. Mark Pody, R-Lebanon, pledging Tennessee’s support for Israel, Nashville Public Radio reports. The move comes amidst cries of anti-Semitism directed at Democratic U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, who made controversial comments regarding the pro-Israel lobby in Congress. The signing at the State Capitol hosted a diverse group of attendees, including Rabbi Joshua Kullock of Nashville's West End Synagogue and bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs.
