President Barack Obama's chief of staff will give a speech to a major advocacy group that opposes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough's address to the J Street group indicates that the administration will seek to strengthen voices that challenge Netanyahu. After his victory in Israel's elections this week, the White House said it had to reassess its approach considering Netanyahu's hard veer to the right in the campaign.

J Street is an Israel advocacy group that often criticizes the Israeli government — and especially Netanyahu. The group calls Netanyahu's election victory a "deep disappointment" and accuses him of winning by shredding U.S. bipartisanship on Israel and "preying on fear and racism at home."

McDonough will speak to the group on Monday.
