Amnesty International recently published a report entitled Israel’s Apartheid against Palestinians: Cruel System of Domination and Crime against Humanity. Several rabbinic organizations have issued critical responses to this report, including The Rabbinical Assembly, representing Conservative/Masorti rabbis, the Central Conference of American Rabbis, and the Orthodox Union. On Monday, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association with Reconstructing Judaism added meaningfully to the range of responses.
The Minnesota Rabbinical Association consists of rabbis from across the various movements and beyond, and while these statements cannot capture the breadth of views within our community, we share them with the wider community at this time as an invitation to increased awareness and discourse.
