WHEREAS the Union of American Hebrew Congregations continues to urge vigorous and direct public action in support of Soviet Jewry, we strongly reject lawless behavior in the United especially violence, be it against foreign diplomatic personnel or our own law-enforcement as techniques to gain their objectives. We strongly condemn any and all individuals and organizations, no matter how great their zeal, who resort to, advocate, or endorse such lawless activities, and we disassociate ourselves from them. They do not express Judaism, neither do they benefit the Jewish people. Vigilantism is not vigilance.
