Reform Leader Condemns Comments from Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush Following Hamas Attack on Israel

On Wednesday, October 11th, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism, sent letters to Representative Rashida Tlaib (MI-12) and Representative Cori Bush (MO-01) to express the Reform movement's unequivocal and strong opposition to their comments since Hamas's heinous attack on Israel beginning October 7. In the letters, Rabbi Jacobs criticized their calls to end U.S. support for Israel when Israel has seen more than 1200 deaths, approximately 150 hostages taken, and thousands more injured, and reminded the congressmembers of the imperative role the US must play to ensure continued peace and security for all people in the region.
