Contact: Lauren Theodore,, 212-650-4154

We hope and pray that the cease fire holds, and at the same time, the Union for Reform Judaism and Central Conference of American Rabbis deplore the massive rocket attack unleashed upon Israel and its citizens by Islamic Jihad and Hamas, the terrorist clients of the Iranian regime, which controls the Gaza Strip.

We hope you “recognize how some of your government’s policies both strain our connection to the Jewish State and hamper our ability to advocate for Israel’s well-being,” write over 100 Jewish millennials affiliated with a broad swath of American Jewish organizations in a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, delivered today, five days before his speech to AIPAC’s Policy Conference in Washington.
