Rabbis support Church Divestment from Israel’s Occupation
Posted by rabbibrian on April 2, 2012
Mainstream Jewish organizations, often supported or even led by liberal rabbis, devote extraordinary amounts of time, money and energy in trying to silence any church group that targets companies that profit from the Occupation. Just last week I got a letter from my colleague, Rabbi Steven Gutow, head of the Jewish Council of Public Affairs, urging all rabbis to sign a letter addressed to the Methodists and Presbyterians to urge them not to support divestment from companies that profit from the Occupation.
I am very proud to be part of the Jewish Voice for Peace Rabbinical Council that has just written a letter of support to the Methodists and Presbyterians in solidarity with their principled action to end Israel’s Occupation. I encourage you to support this effort.
