The U.S. Senate voted to confirm Daniel Shapiro as America’s ambassador to Israel.

Shapiro, who was confirmed May 26, had been nominated to the post in March by President Obama while serving as senior director for the Middle East and North Africa at the National Security Council.

He had coordinated Jewish outreach for the Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

An array of Jewish groups praised the president’s nomination of Shapiro.
