(OGA) As Israeli settlement colonies continue to expand in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) continues to urge companies to end business connections in the region. At the 223rd General Assembly (2018), commissioners passed an overture calling on RE/MAX LLC to end the sale and rental of homes and apartments in the occupied territories. The Rev. Dr. J.
