One of America's oldest Protestant denominations is holding its biennial assembly this week, and high on the agenda is a proposal to divest from companies that do business with Israel. A vote on the measure is set for Friday. VOA religion correspondent Jerome Socolovsky reports that if approved, the Presbyterian Church USA would be the largest religious organization in the United States to impose sanctions on Israel.
