Israel Action Network reaches out to 5,000 rabbis


The Israel Action Network is reaching out to 5,000 rabbis during the High Holy Days season as part of an ongoing campaign to counter the de-legitimization of Israel.

The network, a project of the Jewish Federations of North America in partnership with the Jewish Council of Public Affairs, announced the initiative Sept. 10, which will include sermon inserts and a resource guide for educating congregants that will promote peace between Israel and its neighbors.

Among the rabbinic organizations partnering in the distribution of materials are the JFNA Rabbinic Cabinet, the Association of Reform Zionists of America, the Rabbinical Assembly and the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism.
