OPERATION PILLAR OF DEFENSE

 

 

The Psalmist said,  

"Turn from evil and do good;  

seek peace and pursue it" (34:14).  

 

The World Union for Progressive Judaism sends its message of hope and support for a swift cessation of the current conflict, which jeopardizes the lives of Israelis and those living in Gaza as well.   

 

Having suffered over 400 rocket attacks  

from Gaza in the past few days alone, Israel had little choice but to react in self-defense and initiated Operation Pillar of Defense, and we unequivocally support Israel's action at this time.

 

We hope for a swift cessation of armed conflict and we pray that Israel will soon be able to wage peace, to turn from destruction that comes from weapons of war, and fight the difficult battle of negotiating for peace. 

 

For now, our abiding concern  

remains with Israel and her citizens - prayers from around the world focus on the protection of our sisters and brothers in the land of our history and heritage and the promise of our future.

 

Signed,

 

Mike Grabiner
