48th General Assembly November 1965 San Francisco, CA
NO COLOR BARRIERS IN UAHC
The UAHC has taken many courageous stands in behalf of full equality for all Americans in the civic and social life of our country. It has called upon all Americans, Jews and non-Jews, to eschew all forms of segregation and discrimination based upon race and color. It is in this spirit, therefore, we reiterate the traditional stand of Reform Judaism that there are no color barriers to the acceptance in the Union of American Hebrew Congregations of congregations composed of Reform Jews. Therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED that the UAHC invite qualified Jewish congregations, regardless of the racial ancestry of their respective memberships, to seek affiliation with the Reform movement and we urge all constituent congregations to likewise invite individual Jews, regardless of their racial ancestry, to affiliate with them as members.
